    On November 29, 2010, 2 Harvard Law students filed suit against (.pdf) the Terrorist Support Agency and the new electronic strip search and genital rub "pat down" screening procedures.

    They are arguing to try the case in US District Court as the matter is a Constitutional one, violating a person's right to reasonable search of their person. “Plaintiffs found the process highly intrusive, including touching, better described as prodding and lifting of the genitals and buttocks.”

    The case is Redfern v. Napolitano, 10-cv-12048, U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts (Boston). A nice summary may be found at Bloomberg.

    Thanks to TSA Out of Our Pants! for the link to the suit.
