Catching up.....

Hot on the heels of Justice Breyer's suggestion that the supreme court might be willing to take a peek at a cert petition if the right questions were asked....I filed a cert petition yesterday for my remaining client and sought to ask the right questions....

Of course my clients case is perhaps too silly for the court's to take seriously---I mean he is accused of being in the wrong guesthouse in Pakistan and studying English...really you can't make this stuff up. So yes, we will detain him forever because he is too dangerous to release but they have no evidence to try him. unless of course someone could just make studying English a capitol offience....geez.

Anyway, getting the supreme court's attention on these cases is pretty near impossible. They refused two additional cert petitions this past month. So I am not holding my breath.

And of course the forever military commission "trials" are doing just fine.... as long as the defense doesn't take too seriously the FBI spying on them.....

So yes, it has been a long time since I updated this blog but as you can see not much has changed.
