ACLU of Northern CA

Class action lawsuit to challenge the Transportation Security Administration's ("TSA's") administration and management of the "No-Fly List," a list circulated to commercial airlines and security personnel with instructions to detain and question any passenger whose name matches or is similar to one on the No-Fly List.

The No-Fly List was implemented beginning in November 2001. Since then, it has resulted in hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent passengers being routinely stopped, questioned, and searched.

It is unclear why or how names appear on the No-Fly List. Passengers have no meaningful way to clear their names and avoid being subjected to these delays, searches, and stigma virtually every time they fly.
