JPL Scientists Take NASA To the Supreme Court

CheshireCatCO writes “Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, concerned about background checks now required of federal employees, sued NASA to suspect the checks back in 2007. The case has now worked its way up to the Supreme Court. At stake: whether all federal employees can be forced to undergo open-ended background checks whether or not the employee has exposure to classified or sensitive information. The background checks, which can include interviewing people from employees’ pasts such as landlords and teachers, may seek, among other things, sexual histories.”
