Webster v. Doe

486 U.S. 592 (1988)


The NSA act allowed the director of the CIA discretion to terminate in the interests of the U.S. under 50 U.S.C. section 403(s). The CIA dismissed P from the CIA because he was a homosexual. P claimed that such a dismissal exceeded the director's statutory authority and was an abuse of discretion and a violation of the Constitution as well as depriving him of constitutionally protected liberty, property, and privacy.
