Appeals Court Says TSA Offers have Immunity from Lawsuits

Mods, please move to the appropriate forum if necessary.

In a split decision, the federal court found that as United States government employees, Transportation Security Administration agents have “sovereign immunity” from lawsuits resulting from the performance of their official duties.
I don't understand this ruling at all. Why does a government employee not receive sovereign immunity while a private citizen does? Citizens shouldn't have more rights when searching people than a police officer does.
