Families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks want more information about what happened that day.
There's a lawsuit pending against the New York City Fire Department to release the tapes and transcripts of 911 calls and fire department radio calls from Sept. 11.
The state Court of Appeals heard arguments the tapes be unsealed. Victims' families said the materials will provide some much needed answers.
Victim's wife Patricia Casazza said, "We need that information for some closure, of course. That would be appreciated. Much of what happened around 9/11 has been kept from us, even our loved ones' final words, but more importantly it's to prevent these types of occurences from happening in the future."
The lawsuit was initially filed by The New York Times after a reporter was denied access to the records by the New York City Fire Department.
