Seventeen family members of people killed in the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks are appealing a court decision that ultimately will decide where unidentified victims’ remains will rest.

The appeal comes in a New York court decision of a lawsuit brought after the 9/11 Memorial Museum decided to keep the unidentified remains of ground zero victims underground near the museum. According to the 9/11 Memorial’s website, the repository will be located between the footprints of the two towers and will be accessed, operated, and maintained solely by the city’s office of the chief medical examiner.

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum received “overwhelming feedback” from families that led to the decision to house the remains in a repository “on the sacred ground of the site,” according to the website.
