As Expected, Supreme Court Won't Hear Challenge On Naked Scanners

from the no-surprise dept

This will hardly come as a surprise, but Slashdot alerts us to the news that the Supreme Court has chosen not to hear John Corbett's quixotic appeal against the legality of the naked scanners now being commonly used in airports (though, via upgrades, there's now less nudity involved). The legal effort was a long shot from the beginning. Corbett has been on a crusade against the machines, which I appreciate -- but his efforts sometimes seem to go too far, and didn't do much to help his case.

    Oh, so now SCOTUS resolve the really big issues even when the lower courts are all in agreement. Got it.

    I see you are scheduling the docket, any additional insight?

    Wow, it's a good thing you are on top of this - otherwise the SCOTUS might have heard cases which should be left on the back burner for a few more years.
