TSA is being sued over their use of full body scanners at airports: Link to Suit Included Below


The Drudge Report, Infowars.com, Prison Planet.com, and the alternative media have forced CNN and the corporate media to cover this issue.

 Airport body-scan radiation under scrutiny


The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) is proceeding with a lawsuit against the TSA over its use of naked body scanners. Filed in the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, EPIC's lawsuit asks for the courts to halt the US government's use of naked body scanners altogether.

EPIC has brought claims under the Administrative Procedure Act, the Privacy Act, the Video Voyeurism Prevention Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Fourth Amendment.

(The TSA's naked body scanners and aggressive pat-down techniques violate all these federal laws and Constitutional protections.)

That effort has now been joined by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, who agrees that the TSA's use of naked body scanners must be challenged.

EPIC's lawsuit against the TSA alleges that the intrusive pat-downs are used by the TSA as a retaliatory punishment for those passengers who choose to opt out of the body scanners.

The EPIC lawsuit also submits that the capture of naked body scanner images is itself a violation of federal law.
