9/11 Families Await Day in Court

Six years after September 11th, the victims' families who decided to sue are still waiting for their day in court.

Out of the thousands of people who lost loved ones on 9/11, 95 families opted not to accept money from the Victims' Compensation Fund. Instead, they brought suit against the airlines, Massport, and the security companies that used to run airport security checkpoints. They allege negligence in allowing terrorists to board four flights on that tragic day.

Joining us to discuss what's happened to those families' cases is WBUR's Fred Thys.

Audio for this story will be available on WBUR's web site later today.

This program aired on September 11, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
