Group files suit on behalf of Fourth Amendment airport protestor

From the Daily Progress:
An Albemarle County man who stripped to his athletic shorts to reveal a portion of the Fourth Amendment written on his chest has filed a $250,000 suit against officials over how officers at a Richmond airport handled his protest of the Transportation Security Administration’s changes to its security screenings.
Attorneys for The Rutherford Institute, a local civil rights organization, filed a lawsuit Thursday in Richmond’s federal court on behalf of Aaron B. Tobey. The suit claims Tobey was falsely imprisoned, maliciously prosecuted and deprived of his First, Fourth, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights during the Dec. 30 incident.
