12 Jun Boumediene “Insta-Symposium”
The Supreme Court has just rendered its decision in Boumediene v. Bush, announcing that the DTA procedures are not an adequate and effective substitute for habeas corpus and that the MCA operates as an unconstitutional suspension of the writ.
Opinio Juris is very pleased to announce an “insta-symposium” to discuss the decision. We have an amazing line-up of guests, including Geoff Corn (South Texas), Eric Freedman (Hofstra), Paul Halliday (Virginia), Chimène Keitner (Hastings), Andrew Kent (Fordham), Jenny Martinez (Stanford), Julian Davis Mortenson (Fordham), Michael Newton (Vanderbilt), Deborah Pearlstein (Princeton), Patrick Philbin (Kirkland & Ellis), David Scheffer (Northwestern), Beth Van Schaack (Santa Clara), Steve Vladeck (American), and G. Edward “Ted” White (Virginia).
We look forward to the discussion over the next few days.
