Lynsie Murley TSA Patdown Settlement Reached: Lynsie Murley Photo
Lynsie Murley Won a Settlement Against the TSA Who She Said Exposed Her Breasts During a Patdown in May 2008
The amount Murley received has not been disclosed, but it is allegedly a 'nominal' settlement from the government.
She filed a lawsuit in 2010 for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress, after she claimed a TSA agent pulled her blouse down and exposed her breasts to everyone in the Corpus Christi airport.
Her lawyer, Jerry McLaughlin, said that his client had received 'some justice'.
Mr McLaughlin reportedly laughed loudly when asked if the negotiated payment was around six figures.
He said that the amount was, 'Way less than that. It wasn't a whole lot of money'.
Lynsie Murley said that the TSA agents joked about what they had done for a while, and then after she was consoled by a friend, she returned to the line and was told by a male TSA agent that he wished he had been there when the incident occurred.
