Court Says Stanford Student On ‘No-Fly List’ Can Sue Homeland Security
Source: CBS

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — A federal appeals court said a Stanford University student can sue the Department of Homeland Security over her erroneous placement on the government’s “no-fly list.”

Rahinah Ibrahim flew from San Francisco to Malaysia for a Stanford-sponsored conference in January 2005. Ibrahim since has been prevented from returning to the U.S. to complete her doctoral studies because she’s on the government’s terrorist watch list.

A lower court threw out her lawsuit claiming her constitutional rights were violated because she was living in Malaysia when she filed.

But the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the decision Wednesday, saying Ibrahim had sufficiently deep connections to the U.S. to pursue the claim.

Prevented from finishing her doctorate for six or seven years for no apparent reason? Jaysus. Our agencies are so out of control and the Bill of Rights and 14th amendment to Constitution are relics.
