NEW YORK CITY, New York: On September 9, 2009, New York City lawyers conceded that the New York City Coalition for Accountability Now referendum effort did successfully submit over 30,000 signatures to the city clerk, thus eliminating a scheduled signature review by a city court appointed referee. According to group representative and 9/11 victim family member Manny Baldillo: “The City conceded we have 30,000 valid signatures. Big victory.”

Supporters of the referendum are hoping for a new 9/11 investigation that will be impartial and will include the efforts of the actual citizens of New York City.[1]

The next step for the group is to submit its memorandum of law because of the city’s motion for summary judgement, which is to see if the referendum meets New York City legality. A final decision on the issue must be made by September 7, 2009.[2]
