US Supreme Court decision Boumediene v. Bush [12 June 2008] about habeas corpus Guantanamo detainees

The American Society for International Law (ASIL) published an article written by Andrew Kent about the Military Commissions Act (MCA) and the habeas corpus review concerning Guantanamo detainees. The US Supreme Court decided on June 12, 2008 that the US Military Commissions Act of 2006 violated the constitutional right of the detainees to meaningful habeas corpus review by federal civilian judges.
