The Nation : U.S. to Appeal Test Ruling

November 21, 1986

The Justice Department announced it will appeal a federal court ruling that overturned the U.S. Customs Service's drug testing program. In a motion filed with the U.S. District Court in New Orleans, the Justice Department sought a suspension of the Nov. 14 order issued by Judge Robert F. Collins in which he found the Customs Service's drug testing program unconstitutional. The department said it wants a stay of the ruling pending appeal. Collins' decision comes at a critical period for the Reagan Administration's anti-drug campaign, which is attempting to institute drug testing programs at many agencies in the government.
