Alaska Airlines Inc. v. Transp. Sec. Admin., No. 09-1062

By FindLaw Staff on December 11, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a petition for review of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) imposition of passenger security fees on airlines, the petition is denied where: 1) petitioner's technical objection to the TSA's use of nonrandom judgmental sampling in auditing airlines is unfounded; and 2) the auditors' sampling methodology drew broadly from flights in every year during the audited period and the sampling was designed to select a fairly representative sample of the audited population.
