US: Court Rules No-Fly List Illegal

A US courthouse ruled on Tuesday that adding names to airline no-fly lists without the accused party’s knowledge is illegal.

The district court judge found that airline no-fly lists adversely affect passengers’ freedom to fly, without them having any way to appeal the decision. The ruling was handed down as part of a petition filed by 13 Muslims who were not allowed aboard a flight for no apparent reason.
