The majority of U.S. District Judge William Alsup’s decision that a Stanford student was wrongly put on terrorist watch lists was largely unsealed Thursday. Alsup ruled that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security lacked sufficient “due process” for individuals to appeal their placement on such lists.
The released decision also notes that Dr. Rahinah Ibrahim’s daughter also was wrongly put on a No Fly list when she attempted to attend her mother’s court hearing in San Francisco. The unsealed decision still includes redacted portions, such as “Government counsel has conceded at trial that Dr. Ibrahim is not a threat to our national security. She does not pose (and has not posed) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.”
