A four year old John Doe is the lead plaintiff in a class action suit against the US Government that alleges that his diapers were searched when he flew as a seven-month-old baby and the TSA designated him a terrorism risk.
The case, Baby Doe v. Piehota, is being led by Council on American-Islamic Relations Michigan Chapter, which says that the US government racially profiles people of Arabic descent.
