D.C. Circuit Considers Limits on Guantanamo Detention

Oral arguments were held today in Abdul Razak Ali v Trump.

Appellant Ali argues the following four questions:

  • The Constitution’s Due Process Clause applies at Guantanamo.
  • D.C. Circuit precedent does not foreclose the application of the Due Process Clause.
  • Ali’s continuing detention violates due process.
  • The 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force limits continuing detention at Guantanamo

Appellee brief

While my hopes are not high, they need to just keep litigating the **** out of that mess that is Guantanamo.

Good. Cut them loose.
