The American Civil Liberties Union said it plans to file a lawsuit today against the U.S. Department of Energy on behalf of Moniem El-Ganayni, a nuclear physicist and Muslim prison chaplain who lost his security clearance and job at the Bettis Laboratory in West Mifflin.

The suit will charge that the DOE violated its own policies by denying Dr. El-Ganayni, a naturalized U.S. citizen, the chance to contest the revocation and invoking “national security” to keep secret its reasons for doing so.
