NASA Still At Standstill Over Background Checks

Nick Fishman

If you’ve been following the on-going drama of NASA’s quest to perform background checks on their contractors, I’ve got an update:  Nothing has changed . . . again.  The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected NASA’s request to lift the injunction it imposed earlier to stop them from conducting background checks on a group of 27 contractors (full story).

It seemed that the biggest issue that the contractors had was that they didn’t think NASA should have the right to dig into their personal lives including their sexual orientation and family lives.  You wonder if NASA really needs that type of information.  Stay tuned.  We’ll keep following this soap-opera.
