Latest in Abd al Hadi al Iraqi
Proceedings resume this morning at Guantanamo, in the military commissions case of United States v. Abd al Hadi al Iraqi. We won't be in the house, but plan afterwards to post a read-out on today's events, and any more during the rest of the week's two-day session.
A programming note from Lawfare HQ: for the rest of this week, Lawfare unfortunately won't be almost-live-blogging pre-trial motions litigation in the military commissions case of United States v. Abd al Hadi al Iraqi.
A whopping two weeks of court time earlier had been reserved for pre-trial motions in United States v. Abd al Hadi al Iraqi---but not all of it will be filled with proceedings in the Guantanamo courtroom. The military judge's docketing order doesn't suggest a marathon, for one thing, but instead only sets a few motions for oral argument and allows for the calendar to be adjusted in light of in-court progress.
