Court Rules TSA Screeners Immune From Flier Abuse Claims

Wochit - July 11, 2018

Screeners for the Transportation Security Administration are officially off the hook. Reuters reports that TSA screeners have won immunity from flier abuse claims. A federal appeals court ruled that screeners are immune from such claims. This under a federal law governing assaults, false arrests and other abuses. In a 2-1 vote, the court said TSA screeners are shielded by government sovereign immunity Largely because they do not function as β€œinvestigative or law enforcement officers.” This means travelers may not win damages for invasive screenings at airport security checkpoints..
