On Nov. 30, the Justice Department responded to D.C. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan's order in ACLU v. Mattis for the government to say whether the unnamed American citizen detainee being held as an enemy combatant had requested counsel and whether he invoked his right to habeas corpus. The ACLU then filed a reponse brief. On Dec. 1, the Justice Department filed a response opposing the ACLU's brief. All three documents are below.
