Judge Lamberth's surprise- UPDATED AGAIN

And here I thought he would never rule against the government on anything related to Guantanamo. I guess this was even too outrageous for him. At least until the DC Circuit gets hold of this issue the attorneys for men who lost their habeas case can still communicate and visit with their clients. Read the corrected decision here (sorry it takes awhile to load). The judge corrected the decision to reflect that a handful of men have had legal proceedings...actually only one has had a truly legal proceeding-the one (Ahmed Ghalani) that was moved to NY to be tried. (h/o to D. Remes for the name and last link below!)
