EPIC Prevails in Passenger Screening Lawsuit Against DHS

EPIC has prevailed in EPIC v. DHS, a case involving a controversial passenger screening program operated by Customs and Border Protection. The agency combines detailed personal information with secret algorithms to assign "risk assessments" to travelers, including US citizens. EPIC sued the DHS and argued that the agency unlawfully withheld records under the Freedom of Information Act. Today, a federal judge concluded that EPIC "has the more convincing argument" and that the agency failed to disclose information about the "Analytic Framework for Intelligence" program.
