Government’s Secret No Fly List Under Challenge
Judge Scolds U.S. Officials Over Barring Jet Travelers:
From the order of June 15 by U.S. District Court Judge Charles R. Breyer (a copy of which has been provided by The Volokh Conspiracy), “In this Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) action plaintiffs seek records regarding “no fly” and other transportation watch lists, as well as agency records concerning plaintiffs Rebecca Gordon and Janet Adams. Now pending are the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment. In light of the nature of the government’s claimed exemptions, the Court directed the government to produce copies of all withheld records for the Court’s review…That material which is not exempt shall be promptly disclosed to plaintiffs in response to their FOIA request.
