The Chairman and Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Committee, along with four other Senators, have sent a letter [2] to the head of the US Marshal Service to ask why the federal agency stored more than 35,000 images from whole body imaging scans taken at the Orlando federal courthouse.

 The letter follows a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit [3], filed by EPIC, in which the Marshal Service was forced to disclose the fact that it had stored body scanner images.

EPIC has also filed an emergency motion [4] in federal court to suspend the program, pending a thorough review of the airport body scanner program. For more information, see EPIC: Whole Body Imaging Technology [5] and EPIC v. DHS (Suspension of Body Scanner Program) [4].
