As I am sure you have noticed I have not discussed my remaining client at Guantanamo for quite a while. That is because his case had been pending in the D.C. Court of Appeals until this spring and then I filed a Cert Petition in the U.S. Supreme Court over the summer. Last week I filed the final brief in this matter- the reply to my cert petition. The likelihood that the Supreme Court will hear my client's case is small- the Court only takes a tiny fraction of the cases that are filed but as Studs Terkel was fond of saying "hope dies last..." and so I wait and... hope. It has been ten years since I last (and first!) argued in the Supreme Court so perhaps it is my time again.
Marty Lederman has more on my clients Cert Petition here with links to the Petition, Opposition and Reply.
The Court will (most likely) make its decision on September 29th.
HAHAHA-- it was just pointed out to me that I spelled Barack Obama "Barrack Obama.".... kind of a fun typo if you ask me....while my client sits in the barracks at gitmo for going on 13 years.
