Boumediene/Al Odah Supreme Court Case: Brief Resource Center

On June 29, 2007, the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Boumediene v. Bush and Al Odah v. United States. The consolidated cases address, among other issues, whether the provisions of the Military Commissions Act of 2006 that bar Guantanamo detainees from pursuing habeas corpus petitions violate the Suspension Clause of the U.S. Constitution, and whether the detainees are entitled to pursue habeas claims in federal court.

Gary Isaac and Jim Schroeder of Mayer Brown, along with Jonathan Hafetz of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU Law School, coordinated the amicus support in Boumediene and Al Odah. All of the briefs submitted at the merits stage in the Supreme Court are posted below:
