PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A group of Americans on the U.S. no-fly list, including the imam of the Portland Islamic Center, say the U.S. has failed to explain their placement on the list.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/D1zAsA) a motion filed Friday alleges the government refused to do what Portland U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown ordered: provide notice to plaintiffs explaining why they remain on the list.

The motion was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of six people who five years ago sued Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.

Those prevented from boarding airplanes can petition the government for redress and get a chance to review an unclassified explanation.

According to the ACLU, the six received responses that were inadequate.

The government says in some cases, national security prevents them from releasing information.
