Jesse Ventura's suit over airport search tossed

ST. PAUL — A federal judge Thursday tossed out former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura’s lawsuit that argued body searches at airports violated his right against unreasonable and unwarranted searches.
In her dismissal, U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson didn’t address the merits of Ventura’s suit, but rather said she lacked jurisdiction to hear the case.

She wrote that Ventura was challenging a Transportation Security Administration order and that the law says such directives can be challenged only in a federal court of appeals.
Ventura’s attorney, David Olsen, said he hadn’t had a chance to advise the former governor on his options.
