Homeland Security previously announced a ban on laptops in passenger compartments on flights from eight mostly Muslim countries. The Attorney-General for Washington State Bob Ferguson immediately filed a lawsuit in crayon saying that this represented discrimination and violated the laptops’ first amendment rights.
Local U.S. District Judge and raconteur James Robart immediately agreed. In an opinion photocopied from his opinion on Trump’s prior travel ban, he stated that this ban violated the establishment clause of the Constitution. He then went on to regale the court with a tale of mystery and adventure on the high seas as Ferguson watched mesmerized.
Speaking in a synthesized voice, a laptop from Dubai expressed relief. “I am glad to not be discriminated against for my beliefs in jihad against all Americans. Moreover, it pleases me to not be forced travel in the luggage compartment near Christian suitcases and colored bags.”
A spokesman for Boardman said, “Trump administration forced to reconsider ban on laptops.”
