Judge Rules No Fly Is A No Go

Judge Rules No Fly Is A No Go

Privacy activists are celebrating a federal judge's ruling against the government's secret 'no fly' list. The Oregon judge ruled the government's appeals process -- or lack thereof -- is unconstitutional.


Terrorism expert Jeff Addicott says the TSA can still enforce a no fly list, but those on it have a better chance to get off it.


"Why am I on the list; allow them to challenge that and then streamline the process."


ACLU attorney Hugh Handeyside says it's been a problem since 9/11.


"The government has long used secret evidence and a secret standard of proof to keep many innocent people from flying indefinitely."


13 Muslims, some U.S. military veterans, filed suit in 2010 saying their inclusion on the list was a mistake.
