Adrienne Durso of Carlsbad, California is suing the TSA for an overly invasive pat down. That pat down, she says, included a female agent groping her breasts and admitting to her son later that he wasn't searched because "you don't have boobs."
Durso, who has had a mastectomy, says she was humiliated and told KOB-TV, "I felt as though I didn't have any rights":
She says she knew her rights had been violated so she asked to speak to a supervisor who she thought would help.
All the while her son stood by her side and couldn't remain silent anymore
"My son, who I'm very proud of spoke up and said 'I went through the metal detector and I did not get a pat-down' to which the supervisor said 'well you don't have boobs'," she said.
That statement was the last straw for Durso - so she contacted the lawfirm of Drinker, Biddle and Reath. Her attorney, Alex Brodsky, says this whole ordeal violates her 4th Amendment rights which protects Americans from unreasonable search and seizure.
"We think that these searches given the invasiveness and given the extensiveness of these searches are really more akin to something like a strip search and certainly as a result we think we have a strong case," said Brodsky.
Durso says she isn't doing this for money or fame but rather for countless other Americans who take to the skies for travel.
