Human rights lawyers representing Haitian victims of a cholera epidemic filed suit in New York on Wednesday against the United Nations, accusing it of having introduced the disease to Haiti, where it has killed more than 8,300 people and sickened more than 700,000 since October 2010.
The decision to file the class action lawsuit followed the U.N. decision earlier this year not to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation claimed by cholera victims in impoverished Haiti.
The plaintiffs are five Haitians and Haitian-Americans whose family members died of the disease or who were infected but survived. They have requested that the court certify the case as a class action, which would allow the plaintiffs to represent hundreds of thousands of Haitians and Haitian-Americans who suffered injuries or died from cholera.

"I’m on a mission. Miss America has always been the girl next door, but Miss America is evolving. And she is not going to look the same anymore. I am Nina Davuluri, and I celebrate diversity through cultural competency."
Miss Nina, you ARE America.
