    Federal judge rules U.S. no-fly list violates Constitution

    (Reuters) - The U.S. government's no-fly list banning people accused of links to terrorism from commercial flights violates their constitutional rights because it gives them no meaningful way to contest that decision, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.

    U.S. District Judge Anna Brown, ruling on a lawsuit filed in federal court in Oregon by 13 Muslim Americans who were branded with the no-fly status, ordered the government to come up with new procedures that allow people on the no-fly list to challenge that designation.

    "The court concludes international travel is not a mere convenience or luxury in this modern world. Indeed, for many international travel is a necessary aspect of liberties sacred to members of a free society," Brown wrote in her 65-page ruling.

    "Accordingly, on this record the court concludes plaintiffs inclusion on the no-fly list constitutes a significant deprivation of their liberty interests in international travel," Brown said.

    Finally a judge with stones who stands up to the POLICE STATE. I'm sure this will be overturned on appeal because that's how the POLICE STATE operates.

    I would not call it a "police state", but I do think the verdict is a good one. If there is no immediate and provable danger, there seems little justification to bar a person from using a plane.

    More police state nonsense. I don't think many people who throw that phrase around have ever seen one.

    This is a good ruling however...

    That's three SCOTUS successes of late. Very nice!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
