TSA sued over airport body scanners

Marc Scribner is quoted in a report on a lawsuit filed by CEI over the deployment of body scanners in airports:

“There is no regulation controlling the use of body scanners right now,” Marc Scribner, a research fellow at CEI, told FoxNews.com. “TSA has been using scanners the last seven years but that entire span of time they’ve been operating without a regulation.”


The agency has expanded its body scanners, but Scribner is confident the lawsuit will force the TSA to change its ways.

“I think after four years of TSA essentially flouting the law and more than two years since the last meaningful action of the agency, we are confident the court will see TSA’s lack of action troubling, and that it warrants a court order to speed up this required process.”
