Seeking Documents In Conjunction With Airport 'Opt-Out' Requests
Liberty Guard, a national, non-profit, non-partisan organization with more than 4,000 members dedicated to protecting and defending individual liberty, has filed suit in the Superior Court for the Eastern District of Virginia against the TSA and the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
This suit is part of Liberty Guard's defense of the civil liberties of American citizens against the intrusive searches that routinely confront air travelers by the TSA at airport security checkpoints.
Former Congressman Bob Barr (R-GA), who serves as Chairman of Liberty Guard, commended President Joe Seehusen and Attorney Christopher L. Markham for filing the lawsuit. "This lawsuit will help empower all those who travel by commercial air carrier, to be protected against arbitrary and privacy-invasive techniques employed by the federal government that are of questionable constitutional validity," said Barr.
The suit explains that the TSA and DHS have refused to comply with Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from Liberty Guard dealing with the November 2010 "opt-out" movement. Liberty Guard is seeking that the court force the government to comply with request.
Liberty Guard is non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that engages in public education campaigns, court action, and legislative activity. Liberty Guard makes full use of the media, courts, legislative influence and, most importantly, the energy of its supporters to advance liberty.
