The Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from the families of victims from the September 11, 2001 attacks. According to the AP, the families claim that NYC "must provide a proper burial for material taken from the World Trade Center site because it could contain the ashes of victims," but "Lower federal courts had dismissed the families' lawsuit against the city, saying it acted responsibly in moving 1.6 million tons of materials from the site in Lower Manhattan to a landfill on Staten Island and then sifting through the material for human remains."
