Ibrahim 'No Fly List' Opinion Unsealed, But Mysteries Remain

"An eight-year fight over a Stanford graduate student's mysterious inclusion on various terror watch lists ended Wednesday with the revelation she has been off the no-fly list since 2005.       The disclosure comes in the fully unsealed 38-page opinion by U.S. District Judge William Alsup, which he issued in January and then partly released - with heavy redactions - a month later while the Justice Department mulled over whether to appeal Dr. Rahinah Ibrahim's case to the 9th Circuit. ... Ibrahim was the first to challenge the government's no-fly list, but others remain in the pipeline. In 2010, the ACLU filed its own challenge to the no-fly list on behalf of 10 U.S. citizens and permanent legal residents, including four U.S. military veterans and two U.S. citizens who had been stranded overseas.  That case, Latif, et al. v. Holder, et al. is pending in U.S. District Court in Portland, Ore.  " - Courthouse News, Apr. 17, 2014.
