Today in Uthman v. Obama, a habeas merits appeal before the D.C. Circuit, the detainee’s merits brief became available. The government is the appellant in this case, appealing Judge Henry Kennedy’s decision granting Uthman’s petition for habeas corpus. Readers may recall, from this post of Jack’s, a story by Propublica’s Dafna Linzer about the two different opinions released in the underlying district court case. The government’s public merits brief is available here.
