A Jacksonville man found out he had been placed on a No Fly List when he tried to board a flight back home from Bosnia, and now he wants a chance to prove he poses no threat to the United States, Zijad Bosnic said in a lawsuit filed Thursday.
After months of waiting for approval in Sarajevo, Bosnic, a U.S. citizen and a Southside homeowner, finally arrived in Jacksonville late Wednesday night. The next day, he and attorneys with the Council on American-Islamic Relations went to the federal courthouse to sue the government.
The text of the lawsuit wasn't available until late Thursday, so the Times-Union was unable to reach the federal government for comment. Those agencies routinely decline to comment on pending lawsuits.
