Original Habeas Petition (UPDATED)

As I announced earlier the Supreme Court today accepted Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's original Habeas Petition (click on the title of the blog to see it)... The next step is for the court to decide if it will hear the is a two step process.... It was disappointing that they would not expedite the review of his case but it is hopeful that they will hear it.

Today (October 2nd) the Court ordered the government to respond to Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's Petition... they have until October 31st... this takes us one step closer to a hearing...


Just when I was ready to throw my law license in the garbage it seems I will be needing it.....

The Supreme Court accepted Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's Original Habeas today.....
I wonder if he will live to see the end result of all of this.


The Department of Defense announced Sunday the transfer of eight detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Six detainees were transferred to Afghanistan, and one each to Libya and Yemen.

DoJ has confirmed that the Yemeni man is Fordham's client, Ali Mohammed Nasser Mohammed (known to DoD as Ali Al Kazmi, ISN 172 and that the Libyan was ISN 557, represented by CCR and Kevin Boris.

Two of the Afghani’s are Muhibullah 974 and Sabar Lal (ISN 801)

We are still waiting for the confirmation of the other afghani prisoners.

After I get that information I will try to figure out how many were actually on the list to be released.... I believe that unlike the last two groups of released detainees at least two were on the list (ISN 172 and 557).
