The Supreme Court held Thursday, June 12, that Guantanamo Bay detainees have a constitutional right to file for habeas corpus in U.S. federal court. Foreign detainees who have been held for years at the prison camp in Cuba will now have the right to challenge their indefinite imprisonment without charges. Professors of international law from Duke Law School—Madeline Morris, Scott Silliman, and Curtis Bradley—will discuss this landmark decision and what the next steps will be for the detainees. Professor Morris is director of Duke Law School's Guantanamo Defense Clinic and was special counsel for the petitioners in Boumediene. Professor Silliman is an expert in the field of national security law and the law of armed conflict and is the Executive Director of the Center for Law, Ethics and National Security at Duke. Curtis Bradley, professor and Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, is an expert on foreign relations law and federal courts.
Refreshments will be served.
