Lawyers frustrated by lack of hearings for Guantanamo detainees

[JURIST] Lawyers for detainees at Guantanamo Bay [JURIST news archive] say they are frustrated by delays that have prevented any court hearings for their clients, despite a US Supreme Court order from almost a year ago that granted them access to US courts [JURIST report]. Differing interpretations of the order have stalled appeals from detainees, with a ruling still months away. Attorneys for a number of Kuwaiti and Yemeni detainees claim their clients have been directly and indirectly pressured by US interrogators to drop their cases, a charge which has been denied. USA Today has more.
