Submission + - One strike against No Fly List, more scrutiny to come.

MickyTheIdiot writes: The Jurist reports: A judge for the US District Court for the District of Oregon ruled Wednesday that those placed on the US government's no-fly list have "a constitutionally-protected liberty interest in traveling internationally by air, which is affected by being placed on the No Fly List." The plaintiffs in the case are 13 US citizens who were denied boarding on flights over US air space after January 2009. Judge Anna Brown hasn't ruled on the constitutionality of the No Fly List yet, and has instructed the attorneys involved to present a roadmap for deciding the remaining issues, but the she has acknowledged that the No Fly List is as a major burden to those on the list and they have the right for that status to be reviewed.
