Oral Argument on Permanent Injunction Against Military Detentions Held
Below is an interview with Bruce Afran the lawyer challenging the NDAA after the court hearing today. It sounds like the hearing went well, but I can imagine the judge is under a lot of pressure; and I'm also concerned about the appeals court. Too often the further away from the people a court is the worse the outcomes for the people. I expect this case will end up before the Supremes -- and that has me especially worried as both parties have nominated justices who believe in executive power and bend over for national security.
