Kiyemba v. Obama

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
08-1234 D.C. Cir. Not Argued Mar 1, 2010 9-0 Per Curiam OT 2009

Holding: The issue in this case was whether a federal judge has the authority to order the release onto U.S. soil of foreign citizens detained by the U.S. military after capture abroad, if the judge first rules that the U.S. has no authority to detain them. The case was sent back to a lower court for reconsideration in light of renewed opportunities for the release of the Guantanamo Bay detainees who brought the case.

Judgment: Vacated and remanded in a per curiam opinion on March 1, 2010.
