CASE ENTRY

Al-Alwi v. Trump

In 2001, Congress authorized the president to detain enemy combatants without trial for as long as hostilities continue. Gitmo detainee captured in 2001: The war in Afghanistan has gone on so long that it’s essentially a new, different war; the authority to detain me has thus lapsed. Also, the courts need to impose some kind of limits on these detentions. D.C. Circuit: Not so.
