If You See Something…Say Something Materially True: Air Wisconsin v. Hoeper and Immunity Under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act

The author analyzes the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Air Wisconsin v. Hoeper, which upheld an airline’s right to claim immunity under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act from civil liability for voluntary disclosures regarding a potential threat to the security of civil aircraft.
