Federal Court Rejects NDAA - Issues Injunction

Arker (91948) writes | more than 2 years ago

Your Rights Online 1

Arker (91948) writes "A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction late Wednesday to block provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act that would allow the military to indefinitely detain anyone it accuses of knowingly or unknowingly supporting terrorism.

The Obama administration had argued, inter alia, that the plaintiffs, including whistleblower and transparency advocate Daniel Ellsberg and Icelandic Member of Parliament Birgitta Jonsdottir lacked standing, but Judge Katherine Forrest didnt buy it.

Given recent statements from the administration, it seems safe to say this will be the start of a long court battle."

Better sources (1)

Given the /. editors in ability to edit why not find some better sources since we all know the editors probably won't. A quick Google search turned up the following:
The actual 68 page ruling from Judge Katherine Forrest [uscourts.gov]
Military Detention Law Blocked by New York Judge [bloomberg.com]
Federal judge strikes down anti-terror law that threatened writers, activists with detention [washingtonpost.com]
Judge blocks indefinite military detention provision [reuters.com]
Federal court enjoins NDAA [salon.com]
I haven't ever heard of any of the sites you listed and I doubt many others have either. I don't know if they are reputable or more like the people over at Infowars.
