Woman whose breasts exposed settles with TSA

Lynsie Murley, Texas woman, 24, receives “nominal” settlement During an “extended search” in Corpus Christi, Lynsie Murley’s blouse was allegedly pulled “completely down” by an airport screener. She sued the  TSA, Transportation Security Administration after her breasts were exposed during a frisking at a Texas airport will receive a “nominal” payment from the government as part of a legal settlement.

The incident, which occurred in May 2008 at a Corpus Christi airport, left her feeling "extremely embarrassed and humiliated," according to the lawsuit. Ms Murley 'was never interested in the money', Mr McLaughlin said, adding that she 'would not have filed a lawsuit if TSA officials had simply sent her a letter of apology'.

She claimed that she was 'singled out for extended search procedures'.

The TSA are accused to have 'joked and laughed about the incident for an extended period of time'.

After Ms Murley left the security line to be 'consoled by an acquintance who had brought her to the airport', she returned to the line only to be told by a male TSA worker that he wished he had been there when she passed through the first time.

According to Ms Murley, the officer added that 'he would just have to watch the video'.

Ms Hurley was awarded her settlement soon after she gave her deposition to government lawyers.

Mr McLaughlin said the agreement gave his client 'some justice'. Read more on dailymail
