Man Wins Lawsuit Against TSA: Unreasonable Search/Seizure

Aaron Tobey hand-wrote a portion of the 4th Amendment on his chest, went to the airport, and was detained when he removed his shirt in protest of TSA practices.

According to wired.com, Aaron Tobey was on his way to his grandmother’s funeral when TSA asked him to step through the x-ray machines at the Richmond International Airport.  Tobey declined, opting for the more invasive pat-down.  He then proceeded to remove his shirt, allowing TSA officials to view a hand-written portion of the 4th Amendment scribbled on his chest.

Officials then detained him for 90 minutes and charged him with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

Tobey sued the TSA for violating his civil rights to the tune of $250,000, and so far, is winning.
