CASE ENTRY

Doe v. Mattis

Dual U.S. –Saudi citizen captured on battlefield in Syria denies he’s an ISIS combatant. The U.S. military detains him without charging him with a crime or bringing him before a neutral magistrate (for seven months and counting). ACLU: Either prosecute or release him. Gov’t: Instead, we’ll transfer him to Saudi Arabia. D.C. Circuit (over a dissent): No transfer. (More on the case from Lawfare.)
