ACLU Files Suit Over 'No-Fly' List

A secret “no-fly” list the federal government maintains of terrorist suspects has been used to humiliate and stigmatize innocent citizens, the American Civil Liberties Union charged yesterday in filing a class-action lawsuit on behalf of seven individuals. Each of the passengers was stopped on multiple occasions at airports by airline and security personnel and extensively questioned, searched and publicly singled out as posing a security threat after being told their names were on the no-fly list, the suit said. In each incident, they were allowed to board their flights after extensive efforts to prove they were not the same person as the suspected terrorist on the government’s list. The passengers, all U.S. citizens, include a 74-year-old minister from Washington state, a 36-year-old U.S. Air Force master sergeant from Alaska, a 22-year-old student at Middlebury College in Vermont, a 34-year-old attorney in Illinois, a 51-year-old activist in Philadelphia and two ACLU employees.
