ACLU plans legal action on TSA no-fly list today

Peter Finn writes in the Washington Post, on p A2, that the ACLU plans to sue the US government today in behalf of ten people on the TSA no-fly list, some of whom have been stranded overseas. The story, on p A2 of the June 30 Washington Post, is “ACLU mounts legal challenge to no-fly list”, link here.

Some people have actually been stranded with domestic flights, also.

There is no real or dependable due process for challenging the list, or for knowing in advance if one is on it mistakenly.

The ACLU has an important FAQ page on the list, which everyone who flies even domestically ought to read. Mistakes do happen. The link is here.
