Activists in New York collected more than 60,000 signatures pushing to get a city investigation into the collapse of 7 World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.
The group only needed 30,000 to present to the City Council, but the council refuses to act on the proposal, so the group gathered an additional 30,000 signatures to submit in September to force the initiative onto the ballot.
The City Clerk’s Office has refused to accept 37,688 of the group’s 65,000 referendum petition signatures.
“Instead of wasting New Yorkers’ time and hard- earned taxpayer dollars humoring conspiracy theorists with wild fantasies, the City Council will continue to focus on passing sound legislation,”
Leaving NYC Coalition for Accountability Now short of the minimum 30,000 signatures needed to put the issue on the November ballot.
According to TheLibertyBeat, The group released a statement on Friday stating that they had filed suit against the city.
Representatives of the city will be required to appear in court for an initial hearing on Thursday, August 14.
