Green, et al v. TSA

This court case is completed

The national ACLU and the ACLU of Washington filed a suit challenging the lack of a process to remove oneself from the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA)  “No-Fly List.” The suit asked TSA to develop satisfactory procedures that will allow innocent people to fly without being treated as potential terrorists and subjected to humiliation and delays. 

A federal court dismissed the lawsuit in January 2005 citing an obscure jurisdictional statute. However, in December 2004 Congress enacted a new statute that requires TSA to enact new rules for the No Fly List. Rather than pursue an appeal based on allegations that predate the new rules, ACLU will wait to see how the new rules play out and bring suit later, if necessary.
