The lawsuit came about when the Tobey took off his shirt before going through the full body scanner at the airport. On his chest he had a portion of the US 4th Amendment written which states in part that “Americans are protected against unreasonable body searches and repossessions”.
TSA employees handcuffed Aaron and kept him locked up in a room for over 90 minutes. Fourteen days after the altercation, Tobey received a notice from the court that he was being sued by TSA for ‘inappropriate behavior’.
Aaron Tobey decided it was time to counter sue. Judge Roger Gregory has since ruled that “Mr. Tobey behaved proper and conducted a peaceful protest with the US constitution text written on his chest. He acted within the frame that provides protection by the 1st Amendment.”
“We are not going to tell Americans to give up their rights under the 1st Amendment, not even for an airport,” Judge Gregory said.
Aaron Tobey filed a claim against TSA for being locked up unjustly. The claim states that TSA personnel asked him while in custody if he was connected to a terrorist organization, if he conducted the protest on behalf of a third party and what he tried to accomplish.
He is asking the court to award him $US250,000 remuneration.
