Muslim-Americans File Suit Over 'Unjust' Placement on Terrorist Watch List

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

Five Muslim-Americans filed a lawsuit on Thursday in a Michigan federal court charging that they have been wrongly placed on a "terrorist" watch-list, with no due process or avenue for recourse.

The plaintiffs hail from southeastern Michigan and are receiving counsel from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)—a civil rights organization. Their complaint takes aim at numerous top U.S. officials, including Attorney General Eric Holder.
