Another lawsuit filed over TSA screening

Wasau Daily Herald (Colorado)

A Colorado attorney has asked a federal judge to order the Transportation Security Administration to abandon its airport screening procedures for United States citizens.

Gary Fielder filed his lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Denver last week, more than a month after he, his two daughters, ages 9 and 15, and a family friend underwent a TSA patdown in San Diego.

Fielder’s lawsuit claimed the patdowns were “disgusting, unconscionable, sexual in nature” and in violation of the Constitution’s protections against unreasonable searches.

Nationally, at least two other lawsuits have been filed over the TSA’s new procedures.
