More Supreme Court Activity

On the heels of the Supreme Court's granting of Cert in Kiyemba comes the next issue "Kiyemba II." In Kiyemba the Supreme Court will decide if the Courts in granting habeas cases can order the men released in the US. In Kiyemba II the Court will be asked to decide if the Courts can bar the transfer of men to countries where the men fear torture or abuse. Both of these cases are important for men like my client Al-Ghizzawi because he cannot go back to his home country of Libya without fear of prosecution, imprisonment and torture and if no third country will take him the US might become his only option.
