M. Akifur Rahman et al. v. Michael Chertoff et al.

This court case is completed

A federal court has ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI to disclose whether 10 people who have been repeatedly stopped and questioned at border crossings are listed in a federal terrorist watchlist. The order came in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU of behalf of the 10 citizens, including a pharmacist from Edmonds, Washington, seeking an end to the abusive stops.

Update, June 26, 2008: The court reversed an order granting nationwide class certification of “a class of citizens who have been delayed in reentering the United States from abroad as a result of watch lists maintained by the Department of Homeland Security.”
