The U.S. Government's "No Fly" list violates constitutional rights, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday.
U-S District Judge Anna Brown of Portland, Oregon says those on the list are deprived of a meaningful way to have their names removed.
Brown ordered the Justice Department to redraft procedures "with the requisite due process" and without jeopardizing national security.
Thirteen plaintiffs, mostly Muslim-Americans, challenged their inclusion on the list.
They said they were not allowed to board flights and were not given any explanation.
They also said they were not given the chance to demonstrate they were not a threat to public safety.
The FBI created the "No Fly" list" after 9-11 when terrorists hijacked four US airliners.
