FWIW, my personal list of active suits against the TSA's new procedures is as follows along with the number/description corresponding to the OP's list in [brackets], and doesn't include EPIC or Amarillo because they sued about things that happened prior to the forced AIT/groping a couple months ago:

Corbett v. US, 10-CV-24106, SDFL 11/16/2010 [4 - "The Florida Businessman"]
Roberts v. Nappy, 10-CV-1966, DCD 11/16/2010 [3 - "Rutherford the First]
Fielder v. Nappy, 10-CV-2878, COD 11/26/2010 [5 - "The Colorado Attorney"]
Redfern v. Nappy, 10-CV-12048, MAD 11/29/2010 [7 - "The Harvard Law Students"]
Blitz v. Nappy, 10-CV-930, MDNC 12/03/2010 [8 - "North Carolina Family"]
Durso v. Nappy, 10-CV-2066, DCD 12/06/2010 [9 - "Rutherford the Second"]

I'm interested in contemporary, ongoing lawsuits that address current issues. Fofana & Bierfeldt have been concluded, and some of the others are ancient history.

You are correct, so it's back to 9, plus the two new suits by Robin Kassner (#10) & Claire Hirschkind (#11).

"Ancient history"? TSA has only existed for eight years.

TSA has settled the Amarillo, TX, woman's lawsuit for exposing her breasts for a "nominal" amount:

I've added 3 more to the base post:
  1. Jesse Ventura
  2. EPIC, another lawsuit to compel compliance with FOIA
  3. ACLU, no-fly list lawsuit

Just keep filing 'em ...

TSA spokesman Luis Casanova also refused to name the agents responsible, but did say they hadn't been fired or disciplined. "When a settlement is reached, there is no disciplinary action," Casanova said. "It's a no-fault kind of settlement."
That's beyond ridiculous. So they weren't even "retrained"?

No unless said retraining is part of the consent decree. If it's not down in writing and enforceable, it's not going to happen.

This is why if I ever have to sue a government thug agency, there WILL be a consent decree and there WILL be a judge retaining jurisdiction for the purpose of monitoring and enforcing said consent decree. Even if the original government thug offender is spending the next ten years bent over a prison bunk with tears of pain and humiliation running down his face. (Never happen, but hope springs eternal)

No, I wouldn't recommend a class action. We need to inflict a death by a thousand cuts on this agency full of criminal pervert thugs. A class action only requires a defense in one case, in one court, by one defense team. File ten thousand cases and since it will be an uphill battle, hope for one rogue verdict in a case finding that it IS a 4th Amendment violation. The TSA will then be collaterally estopped (look it up on wiki) from claiming it's not. On the other hand, losses by claimants will have no effect on other cases, since to be collaterally estopped, you must have been a party to the other ase. And sue the individuals. Use the ADA, file a Bivens case. If they got medical info, sue under HIPPA when they ignore a request for a copy of the mandated written privacy policy. They don't have one. Sue both the agency and the individual TSO/BDO/SOB. And if the same government lawyer represents both, bring up the conflict of interest and have him removed. Bankrupt the officers. Starve their children to death. Make them homeless. Get them fired. Humiliate them.

Do I sense some bitterness here?
