"Five Muslim-Americans filed a suit Wednesday against US Homeland Security and Customs officials, claiming their constitutional rights were violated when they tried to return home from an Islamic conference in Toronto last December." The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed the suit on behalf of these five individuals. More on the details of the alleged violation, which included a lengthy stop and interrogation, can be found here.
UPDATE: We're providing links to the New York Civil Liberties Union's press release regarding the case, and the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
