UPDATE – EPIC Sues Dept. of Homeland Security, Demands Additional Documents About Airport Body Scanners
January 14, 2010 Court, Surveillance, U.S.
EPIC has filed a second FOIA lawsuit, demanding the release of the full resolution images captured by airport “digital strip search” machines. EPIC’s suit against the Department of Homeland Security also seeks records detailing air traveler complaints and security breaches that may have exposed data to unauthorized individuals. The TSA has called for mandatory use of the body scanners in all US airports. A prior EPIC lawsuit forced the disclosure of documents that reveal that TSA officials can disable privacy filters and export raw image files.
