Federal judge hears arguments on Gitmo detainee court access

[JURIST] US District Judge Joyce Hens Green heard arguments Wednesday on whether Guantanamo Bay detainees have the right to challenge their detention in federal court. Lawyers for the government told Judge Green that prisoners deemed "enemy combatants" have no constitutional right to be heard in court. Lawyers for the detainees argued that Judge Green should declare the military tribunal process at Guantanamo invalid because it fails to provide due process of law. Reuters has more. Paper Chase also has ongoing coverage of the situation in Guantanamo Bay.
