Government's Response On GTMO Counsel Access

Apparently prompted by David Remes' motion regarding GTMO counsel access issues in Esmail [h/t Josh Gerstein at Politico], the government now has filed its own motion.

I've only glanced at the new filing, but it seems the government wants a single district judge to decide the counsel access question, with that judge's ruling to govern not just in Esmail's, but in all completed habeas cases.

I suspect we will have comments shortly.  Stay tuned.
