John Tyner is photographed in San Diego on Nov. 15. Mr. Tyner, a software engineer, posted an Internet blog item saying he had been ejected from San Diego International Airport after being threatened with a fine and lawsuit for refusing a groin check after turning down a full-body scan. Across the country, passengers have to choose scans by full-body image detectors or pat-downs. Top federal security officials said the procedures were safe and necessary sacrifices to ward off terror attacks.
