Court Demands TSA Explain Why It Is Defying Nude Body Scanner Order

By David Kravets 08.01.12 3:55 PM

A federal appeals court Wednesday ordered the Transportation Security Administration to explain why it hasnít complied with the courtís year-old decision demanding the agency hold public hearings concerning the rules and regulations pertaining to the so-called nude body scanners installed in U.S. airport security checkpoints.

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuitís brief order came in response to the third request by the Electronic Privacy Information Center for the court to enforce its order.

A year ago, the circuit court, in a lawsuit brought by EPIC, set aside a constitutional challenge trying to stop the government from using intrusive body scanners across U.S. airports. But the decision on July 15, 2011 also ordered TSA ďto act promptlyĒ and hold public hearings and publicly adopt rules and regulations about the scannersí use, which it has not done.
