Re: is claiming this means the FAA's jurisdiction takes precedence

In my professional experience, I've found lawyers lie a lot, especially when making initial claims in court.

The FAA may have precedence for planes, but not for privacy. Also, when you appeal, you don't get to redetermine facts. Only the initial hearing can do that.

After checking just the first paragraph of the filing, I think the case gets tossed. Boggs was clearly not "traversing" the airspace. He was spying on them and frankly given the noise a drone makes, harassing them.
