Court hearing for 9/11 families on human remains
January 9, 2013 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
This is the last chance families have to make their voices heard about whether or not human remains belong underground in the museum, particularly in light of its recent flooding in the hurricane.
A group of 9/11 family members will have their day in court on January 9, 2013 to appeal and reiterate their request for a list of contact information for all 2,749 WTC families. The sole purpose is to inform them and to seek the input of each family into the City’s plan to place human remains in the flood prone basement of the 9/11 museum.
