Ninth Circuit ruled those on 'no-fly' list could challenge status
Dwyer Arce at 12:00 AM ET

On August 18, 2008, the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that those placed on the government's "no-fly list" can challenge their inclusion on the list in federal district courts. The issue came before the court in a case brought by a woman on the list, in which a district court had ruled that it lacked jurisdiction because of a law exempting Transportation Security Administration (TSA) orders from federal trial court review. Reversing the decision, the Ninth Circuit held that the Terrorist Screening Center, which actually maintains the list, is a subsection of the FBI and is therefore subject to review by the district courts.
