Oral argument in Hamdan will be held on Thursday in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judges David Sentelle, Brett Kavanaugh and Douglas Ginsburg. This order just came in regarding oral argument:

It is ORDERED, on the court’s own motion, that the parties be prepared to address at oral argument on May 3, 2012, the question whether this case is moot. Compare Sibron v. New York, 392 U.S. 40 (1968), with Spencer v. Kemna, 523 U.S. 1 (1998). See also Perez v. Greiner, 296 F.3d 123 (2d Cir. 2002).
