CNSS Amicus Brief in Hedges v. Obama

Date : 13 Nov 2012

In mid-2012, various journalists sued the government based on the mistaken belief that the FY 2012 NDAA authorized military detention of people seized in the United States.  CNSS with The Constitution Project filed an amicus brief explaining: first that the Obama administration has committed to using criminal courts for terrorist suspects in the United States, and second that nothing in the 2012 NDAA or the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force authorized military detention of people apprehended in the United States.  For more information, see our page on the NDAA controversy.
