The Court heard arguments concerning whether former Attorney General John Ashcroft can exercise governmental immunity for using the federal material witness statute to detain terrorism suspects in the aftermath of 9/11. Join Professors Beale, Buell, and Dunlap as they discuss the material witness statute, prosecutorial discretion, and the possible implications of Ashcroft v. al-Kidd. Event sponsored by the Duke Journal for Constitutional Law and Public Policy and co-sponsored by the ICCSN. For more information, please contact Sara Wexler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
