The verdict on the federal Transportation Security Administration’s “no-fly” list is mixed, based on resolution of two law suits. Silicon Valley businessman John Gilmore lost his claim that he was denied due process when not allowed to see the classified security directive creating the “no fly” list after being stopped from boarding a plane to Washington D.C. in 2002. But two federal agencies agreed to pay the ACLU $200,000 to settle a law suit brought by two San Jose area travelers after a judge said they had a right to see regulations that would explain how their names were on the list and what they had to do to get them removed.
