Alaskans to Sue over CAPPS-II
Four Alaskans today announced plans for a Federal lawsuit that will "ask... the court to order the TSA [USA Transportation Security Administration] to tell us when a Security Directive is issued by the TSA so we can learn when they order the airlines to start sending passenger information to the government for CAPPS II testing."
According to the Web site for the plaintiffs at AlaskaFreedom.com the lawsuit will be filed at 9 a.m. Alaska time (10 a.m. PDT, 1 p.m. EDT, 18:00 GMT) Monday, 24 May 2004, in the the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska, in Anchorage. Copies of the complaint will be available after the case is filed.
The plaintiffs include two travel agents and travel agency owners, and two residents of the community of Unalakleet, which is reachable from the lower 48 states or from Juneau, the capital of Alaska, only by air.
