Boumediene v. Bush, a set of consolidated cases to be argued before the US Supreme Court on December 5, raises the question of whether detainees at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay may challenge their detention through habeas corpus petitions. At this program, scheduled for one week after oral arguments before the Court, counsel for the parties and their amici will debate the issues raised in the case and comment on the questions raised by the Justices at the oral argument. The discussion will cover the effect of the Military Commissions Act of 2006*, which purports to strip the federal courts of jurisdiction to hear habeas petitions from the detainees, and whether the detainees are entitled to a hearing on the merits. The distinguished panel will include not only attorneys who participated in the litigation but also a former member of the Bush Administration who has testified before Congress on the issue.
Registration for this event will be accepted on a space available basis, and fee payment is required. Cost: $15.00 ASIL/Section Members; $20.00 Non-ASIL/Non-Section Members; $10.00 Government and Non-profit Employees; Students free.
To register, please complete and fax or mail the registration form.
