US Court Won't Rule in Va. Security Clearance Case

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A federal appeals panel will not rule on whether a government security agency violated an employee's constitutional rights when it pulled his security clearance because of his wife's religious and political activities.

The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel said Thursday that security clearance decisions should be left up to the agencies assessing national security risks rather than the courts.

The panel upheld a lower court's decision to dismiss a lawsuit filed in 2011 by Mahmoud Hegab, a former budget analyst at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency at Fort Belvoir.

His top secret security clearance was revoked in November 2010 after he got married. NGA officials told Hagab they were concerned that his wife attended a private Islamic school, worked for an Islamic charity and participated in an anti-war protest.
