The American Civil Liberties Union has filed the first lawsuit to challenge the federal government's no-fly list. Those who appear on the list are not given any explanation of how they ended up on it; nor are they given an opportunity to clear their names. Of the ten citizens and permanent legal residents on whose behalf the ACLU has filed, half are still stranded abroad. The no-fly list has doubled to 8,000 names since the Christmas Day bomber made his failed attempt to blow up an airplane headed for Detroit.
