A group of family members of 9/11 victims who oppose plans to put the remains underground in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is appealing a judge's decision to block them from gaining access to the names and addresses of the victims' families. The group wants to poll the families themselves.
Jim Riches, a spokesman for 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters & WTC Victims, said Saturday the group would like to see the remains encased in a kind of "tomb of the unknown soldier" that's above ground.
The city said releasing the list would violate families' privacy.
The appeal was filed this week.
