HEARING TO DETERMINE RELEASE OF EVIDENCE RELATING TO AVIATION SECURITY OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001



The New York Times Company and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press Intervene in the Case

and Join 9/11 Families and Motley Rice LLC in their Quest for the Truth



The fate of over one hundred deposition transcripts and over a million pages of documents obtained from airlines, security firms and other defendants named in civil cases resulting from the attacks of September 11, 2001, will be argued on March 25, 2009, in front of the Honorable Judge Alvin Hellerstein, Southern District of New York. The families in three remaining aviation security negligence cases, represented by Motley Rice LLC and led by attorney Donald Migliori and joined by The New York Times Company and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP), maintain that this evidence has broad safety implications, public-interest, substantial historical importance and that the defendants abused the conditions of the protective order by which defendants have asserted confidentiality. Therefore, this evidence should not remain shielded from the public.



The surviving family members who have filed this motion, and will be present at the hearing, include Mike Low, father of American Airlines flight attendant Sara Low who was on Flight 11 as well as John and Paul Keating, sons of Barbara Ann Keating, a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11. The New York Times Company and the RCFP have intervened in the case jointly and will be represented by counsel at the hearing as well.



These families first sought to have the court-confidentiality order removed in 2007. Later the request was withdrawn as both sides tried to negotiate a resolution. That effort failed in 2008. These families renewed their motion on January 14, 2009 and the news organizations moved for leave to intervene on January 21, 2009.





When:

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Hearing 4:00 p.m. EDT

Courtroom 14 D

Interviews Available Immediately Following



Where:

United States District Court

Southern District of New York

500 Pearl Street

New York, NY 10007-1312
