    The court basically ruled that because both the airline and the TSA had possession of her bag, that the plaintiff wasn't even entitled to a trial to determine whether the TSA stole it.

    I feel that this is judicial error, as facts could have arisen during discovery that would have shown that the TSA was the guilty party, and she therefore should have been granted a trial. But sadly, even though dismissal before trial was an error, she probably couldn't have proved her case. Moral: don't put expensive stuff in checked baggage, or the TSA will steal it

    ...and don't let the TSA separate you from your carry-on or they'll steal that, too.

    Interesting avenue of escape for organized crime.
    I stayed in possession of my "jewels" and probably can't prove the pawing. Tell me I can't bring the case, though, and I'll start WWIII.
