We might not be finished with X-ray body scanners. TSA and DHS have a fairly-recent $245 million contract with another supplier for a similar X-ray scanner.
The plaintiff was hoping to get a jury trial in the district court. All suits regarding TSA in the DC circuit court go straight to appeals, meaning no jury trial is possible there. This is the same court that has been so deferential to DHS in the EPIC suit on the same topic. The plaintiff seemed to think a jury would be more receptive to his arguments.
Is another suit in the DC court worth the trouble? If not, then Mr. Corbett has been about as effective as Jesse Ventura was in his suit.
Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of everything and the Wirth of nothing?
