SCOTUS Takes No Action on Uighurs’ Case or Abuse Photos

Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 10:58 am

Although court-watchers were predicting that the Supreme Court would decide yesterday whether to hear the appeal from a group of Chinese Muslim detainees at Guantanamo Bay claiming the right to be released into the United States, the high court apparently decided not to decide, at least for now. Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSblog writes that the justices could still take up the case next week.

The court yesterday also put off deciding whether the U.S. government has to release photos of detainee abuse, as the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing in its Freedom of Information Act case against the Defense Department.  The court could decide whether to hear that case on Oct. 9.

SCOTUSblog has listed here all ten cases the court yesterday decided to review.
