Pan Am was accused of negligence in that it failed to follow the Air Carrier Standard Security Program (ACSSP) by only x-raying checked luggage rather than subjecting it to a hand search.
The Second Circuit ruled that the defense failed because exemptions from the ACSSP had to be made in writing by the FAA following written application.
In the instant case, therefore, the evidence offered by Pan Am regarding its mistaken view of what was required by the ACSSP was inadmissible for the purposes of mounting a mistake of law defense.
