2010 Pulitzer Prize winners will be announced April 12 – If I had a vote it would be Michael Moss’s story on Stephanie Smith’s battle with E. coli O157:H7 and Cargill

The 2010 Pulitzer Prize winners and Nominated Finalists in all categories will be announced on April 12, 2010 at 3 p.m. Eastern daylight time. Finalists are not announced in advance. Winners’ names, photos and bios will be posted on this Website at 3 p.m., along with all winning photographs and cartoons. Links to winning news stories will also be provided where available. The 2010 Prizes are awarded for work published, produced or premiered in 2009.

My vote (I do not have one) would be the New York Times Michael Moss’s October 2009 story about my client Stephanie Smith – "E. Coli Path Shows Flaws in Beef Inspection." I will actually be on a plane to Minneapolis during the announcement helping to make arrangements for Stephanie’s transition home from several month in rehab where she has been learning to tolerate her disabilities.  Good luck Michael and the New York Times.
