Gitmo cases

Guantanamo Bay Detainees in the Courts, an eBook by Leagle.com.

Legal experts will analyze the Guantanamo Bay detainee cases for decades to come, but presented here are the court opinions themselves, unedited and in their entirety, so that readers can review a court’s reasoning firsthand, unfiltered and without bias. 

The opinions are in answer to rulings appealed by both the detainees and the U.S. government, as well as other interested parties, from the earliest rulings in 2002 through the end of 2009.  While most of the decisions in the collection involve Gitmo detainees directly, other related cases are included for context and to fill out the evolution of how the U.S. courts are handling the laws and policies resulting from the war on terror.

Nearly 200 court decisions are included in this extensive collection, covering topics that include terrorism, habeas corpus, al Qaeda, enemy combatants, military tribunals, federal courts, civilian courts, the Supreme Court, court rulings and appeals, lawsuits and trials, the Constitution and constitutional rights, the Geneva Convention, the George W. Bush administration, presidential power, President Barack Obama, the military, the Department of Defense, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and 9/11.
