Man Sues TSA Claiming 'Enhanced Screening' Violates His Constitutional Rights

Is there any legitimate chance of getting an injunction on the Naked Body Scanners of 'Enhanced Pat Downs' here? There is also a question as to if this would be counter productive. While I think groping people at random is foolish at best, that does not mean that there are no individuals based on various criteria that should be on the receiving end of a more intense search.

"An Arkansas man is taking the Transportation Security Administration to court, claiming new screening searches violate the Constitution.
On a recent trip to Chicago, Dean claims that being subjected to a full-body scan and being patted down by TSA personnel harmed his "emotional, psychological and mental well-being," The Associated Press reported.
"Filing for an injunction will stop these types of invasive measures until we can get a ruling on the constitutionality of this," Dean said, according to FOX 16 TV in Arkansas.

The invasive procedures violate the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures, Dean says.
