The Court today accepted a case revolving around the domestic detention of a legal immigrant from Qutar suspected of having terrorist ties. The most interesting thing about the case, al-Marri v. Pucciarelli, is that it will not be heard until after President Obama takes office so President-elect Obama will have the opportunity to revise the position of the White House. President Obama could take the opportunity to conceed the power that President Bush asserted and the case would likely be remanded to a lower court.

Briefs are due about a month after he will be inaugurated and arguments will be held in March or April.
