Judge rules No-Fly List procedures are unconstitutional

The Hill reports:
A federal judge in Oregon ruled Tuesday that the Justice Department and FBI deprived 13 people of their constitutional right to due process by failing to disclose if and why they were included on the U.S. No-Fly List.

U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown ruled that the FBI Terrorist Screening Center, which maintains the database, gives no adequate remedy for the 13 individuals to contest their inclusion on the list.

The fourth amendment amongst friends.
