No-fly list lawsuit should proceed in federal court in Portland, appeals panel rules

http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/i...hould_pro.html

"In a decision issued Thursday, the panel found that U.S. District Judge Anna Brown erred in dismissing the case, filed on behalf of 15 U.S. citizens or permanent residents, for lack of jurisdiction last year. The appeals decision said Brown’s court does have the authority to consider the their complaint about placement on the list as well as to consider whether the government’s process for getting off the list is constitutionally inadequate.

It will be the first time that the federal government has to defend the validity of the process people must use to challenge their inclusion on the no-fly list, said Nusrat Choudhury, the staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union who argued the appeal before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals."

So what happens when the District Judge orders the TSA added to the suit and then dismisses it again?

I think one of the points, of the 9th Circuit opinion, was that the TSA doesn't control the do not fly list.
