Former Governor’s Suit Against TSA is Dismissed

by Charles Platt

Jesse Ventura’s suit against the TSA has been dismissed because the judge claimed lack of jurisdiction. The issue seems complicated by the fact that TSA’s orders and procedures are secret (for our own protection, of course), thus making them difficult to challenge. Ventura commented that he would rather face terrorists “than give up one of my rights.” Sorry, Jesse, you do not have that choice. Story here.

    He just needs to file a petition for review in the Court of Appeals. [Personally, I agree with counsel that the text of the statute does not foreclose 1331 and 1346 review, but rather provides an alternate review process. I’d suggest he file an appeal and a petition for review and consolidate them.]
