Allison Kilkenny: Unreported

The Return of Habeas Corpus!

Posted in Supreme Court by allisonkilkenny on June 14, 2008

I am so very, very happy about this ruling. Here are some of the most informative articles I’ve found concerning it:

  • Newsweek: What Next at Gitmo? — An interview with Jonathan Hafetz, a lawyer who coordinated over 20 amicus briefs for this case, about the effects this decision will have.
  • Time: What the Gitmo Ruling Means — Summarizes the main points made by both the majority and minority opinions of the Court, particularly the objections of Roberts and Scalia.

[If anybody finds a graphic with Supreme Court justices dancing, Lady Liberty crashing a party, or habeas corpus returning, zombie-like, from the dead … those are what I imagine as appropriate pics for this news. :^D]
