BRENNAN'S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT UPHELD
You might recall that John E. Brennan removed his clothes earlier this year to protest invasive security procedures. He was charged with indecent exposure.
Judge David Rees ruled that Brennan was exercising his right to free speech when he stripped naked.
The tech consultant refused to go through a body scanner at the Portland airport and missed his connecting flight. As he stripped to his birthday suit, he said "Do I have anything illegal? Am I good to go through now?"
He argued that by forcing him to go through the scanner, security was going to see him naked.
