"No-fly" trial in San Francisco this week

courtroom sketches

Courtroom sketches from day 4 of the trial by kind permission of Jackson West: Judge Alsup (left, rear), plaintiff's expert witness Prof. Sinnar (top right), Special Agent Lubman (FBI Terrorist Screening Center, center right), and Mr. Cooper (State Department, lower right).

I'll be spending this week and possibly part of next in a Federal courtroom in San Francisco, covering the trial in Ibrahim v. DHS for the Identity Project.

This is the first lawsuit challenging a U.S. government "no-fly" order to make it to trial.

Cellphone coverage and Internet access in the courthouse are unreliable, but I'll be tweeting updates when possible in additional to posting daily reports on the trial in the Identity Project blog at

I'll add links to my updates as they are posted:

If you need to reach me during the trial this week, phone or text me -- I don't expect to have access to e-mail during the day -- and I'll get back to you after court recesses for the day.
