The Supreme Court released five opinions today, the most interesting of which is the decision in Boumediene v. Bush, the landmark detainee right’s case. The Court held, 5-4, that detainees currently designated as ‘enemy combatants’ have signficant habeus corpus rights and have the right to have them upheld in federal district court.

I’m reading this case at the moment and I’ll update this post as soon as possible.
