Case Summary

On April 5, 2016, a group of Muslim-American U.S. citizens represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (in Alexandria). Judge Anthony J. Trenga was assigned to the case. Defendants included the FBI, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCC).

On April 5, 2016, a group of Muslim-American U.S. citizens represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (in Alexandria). Judge Anthony J. Trenga was assigned to the case. Defendants included the FBI, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCC). Seeking declaratory and injunctive relief, plaintiffs alleged that they were placed on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB or “the watchlist”) without warning and without a constitutionally adequate mechanism for having their names removed. Plaintiffs alleged that their placement on the watchlist subjected them to burdensome travel screening and reputational harm that diminished their employment prospects. They argued that the burdens and reputational harm they suffered violated their Fifth Amendment due process and equal protection rights, the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”), and the Constitution’s nondelegation doctrine.

On September 2, 2016, the government moved to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim. The plaintiffs then filed an amended complaint on September 23, 2016, to add twelve new plaintiffs (bringing the total to 25 plaintiffs) and add Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as a defendant.

On September 5, 2017, after a period of inactivity, the Court dismissed the plaintiffs’ substantive due process, equal protection, and non-delegation claims, but allowed their procedural due process and APA claims to proceed to discovery. 303 F. Supp. 3d 453. Rejecting the government’s arguments, Judge Trenga held the following. First, the alleged enhanced screening and detention endured by plaintiffs infringed their rights of travel. Second, the government’s alleged dissemination of the plaintiff’s information with private third parties violated their right to be free of reputational harm.

From November 2017 to March 2019, the parties disputed various steps of the discovery process. One of the disputes that may be of particular interest to legal scholars is that which followed the “first” motion to compel filed by plaintiffs on March 15, 2018. This motion requested access to documents relating to the standards and procedures for watchlist additions, screening policies that utilize watchlist information, the government’s procedures for handling requests from individuals who wish to be removed from the watchlist, and statistics on the watchlist’s overall effectiveness. In response to this motion, the government, via an affidavit from Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed on April 23, 2018, formally invoked the state secrets privilege. Attorney General Sessions asserted the privilege over documents that touched on information shared by foreign governments and other sensitive national security information. After hearing oral arguments on the motion, on May 18, 2018, Judge Trenga ordered the defendants to produce the requested documents to plaintiffs “redacted of any information they believe is privileged or classified” with redactions removed for in camera inspection. However, for the documents requested in the March 15 motion to compel, Judge Trenga did not require the government to include the names of foreign countries that provided information in “sharing agreements” used to populate the TSDB in discovery materials provided to the plaintiffs or the Court. On March 11, 2019, parties filed cross-motions for summary judgment. Both parties then filed memorandums in opposition and continued discovery.

On September 4, 2019, Judge Trenga issued an opinion and order granting in part and denying in part the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment. 391 F. Supp. 3d 562. Judge Trenga held that plaintiffs were entitled to a favorable judgment as a matter of law on their procedural due process and Administrative Procedure act claims. Additionally, the government’s motion for summary judgment was denied. Judge Trenga based this decision on his finding that the travel difficulties faced by the plaintiffs, such as being handcuffed at border crossings and being subjected to invasive secondary searches at airports, were significant and that the plaintiffs had a right to procedural due process when their Constitutional rights were infringed. The District Court also held that the Department of Homeland Security Traveler's Redress Inquiry Program ("TRIP"), which has a process through which plaintiffs may challenge their inclusion on the watchlist, was not adequate to protect their liberty interest. Judge Trenga ordered the parties to submit additional briefing related to the outstanding issue of remedies within fourteen days.

District Judge Trenga entered an order on December 18, 2019, making his September 4 order a final judgment. The defendants filed a motion to vacate this order on December 20, presumably so that they would have time to apply for an appeal following the holidays. Judge Trenga granted the motion to vacate his December 18 order on December 26 and reentered final judgment on the same day.

On January 31, 2020, the defendants appealed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. On appeal was the plaintiff's motion for summary judgment granted on September 4, 2019, regarding both the procedural due process and ACA claims.

On March 30, 2021, the Fourth Circuit reversed the District Court’s grant of summary judgment and remanded for entry of a judgment in accordance with its holding. Writing for a three-judge panel, Circuit Judge Harvie Wilkinson III held that the TSDB does not violate the Fifth Amendment Right to procedural due process. This holding had two subparts. First, delays or inconveniences that plaintiffs faced at airports or while entering the U.S. at land borders did not rise to the level of an infringement on the right to travel. Second, the listing of the plaintiffs’ names on the TSDB database did not meet the standard for a Fifth Amendment claim based on reputational injury. Because the APA claim was essentially based on the same theory of a violation of a Constitutional right as the procedural due process claim, it also failed. 993 F.3d 208.

Following their failure to persuade the three-judge panel, the plaintiffs filed a motion on May 14, 2021, requesting an en banc rehearing of the case at the Fourth Circuit. The Fourth Circuit denied rehearing. A final mandate to the District Court was issued on June 7, 2021. The plaintiffs have 150 days from that date to apply for certiorari to the Supreme Court.
