Oregon District Court Holds No-Fly List Procedures Violate Due Process

Speaking of due process, here’s a very significant decision by Judge Brown in the Latif case in the District of Oregon, about which Shirin Sinnar (in a guest post) and our very own Jen Daskal have blogged previously. In a nutshell, Judge Brown has ruled that the internal redress mechanisms provided by the government for getting off the no-fly list (along with the unclear appeals process) fails to afford adequate due process. I’m sure we’ll have much more to say about Judge Brown’s analysis in the coming days, but although this is only a district court decision, it’s potentially a Very Big Deal going forward.
