A judged ruled it unconstitutional back in 2014 but they are dragging their feet. The government was told that people had to be told that they were on the list so that citizens could appeal it. A few of the people on the list got off but for the others, I suspect the government is hiding behind state secrets privilege.

I swear: we need to fucking use temporary injunctions. CEASE THE ACTIVITY until (if at all) litigation ends up in favor of the party doing such activity.

Yes a million times to this. I don't know much about this area of the law so maybe that isn't possible for this type of thing. Something has to be done though. Imagine going to another country on vacation and being stuck there due to the no fly list only because someone has the same name as you. There is nothing you can fucking do. Your work place could fire you for not showing back up. Then what? Can't sue the government because they aren't going to tell you why you were on there so you can clear your name. This is a life ruiner.
