    Nusrat Chadoury, lead attorney for the plaintiffs, National ACLU National Security Program, talks with reporters following oral arguments on the ACLU No Fly List challenge Friday, May 11, 2012, in Portland, Ore. A federal appeals court in Oregon will hear arguments in a lawsuit filed by 15 men who say their rights were violated because they are on the U.S. government's no-fly list. They are asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland to order their removal from the list or at least get an explanation why they were put on it. The plaintiffs include the imam of a Portland mosque and a Marine veteran who is the son of a Palestinian immigrant. Others are outside the country and unable to return. U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown ruled May 3 that her court does not have jurisdiction over the Transportation Safety Administration, which administers the no-fly list. The appeals court will hear the case on Friday. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

    FILE - Jayashri Srikantiah, staff attorney with the ACLU of Northern California, holds up copies of records showing passengers checked on no fly lists from San Francisco International Airport, as plaintiffs Jan Adams, right, and Rebecca Gordon, center, look on during a news conference in San Francisco, in this April 22, 2003 file photo. The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the government on behalf of Americans who believe they're on the no-fly list and have not been able to travel by air for work or to see family. The no-fly list has swelled to 20,000 people before, such as in 2004. At the time, people like the late Sen. Ted Kennedy were getting stopped before flying _ causing constant angst and aggravation for innocent travelers. But much has changed since then. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)

    Rodrigo Gonsalez waits for tourists to pose with him for photos as he plays Elvis along The Strip, Thursday, June 23, 2011, in Las Vegas. Gonsalez, a welder by trade, has turned to street performing in the absence of construction jobs in the city. The number of celebrity impersonators crowding the Las Vegas Strip has grown in recent months, in part because the stalled economy has left many actors and performers in California and Las Vegas without a job. The casinos, however, are trying to stop them. The ACLU is demanding the city protect the performers, who are free to entertain on public sidewalks under the First Amendment so long as they don't charge for their services.(AP Photo/Julie Jacobson)
