Justice OKs Isolation of Terrorism Suspects

January 29, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

The Supreme Court stepped in to temporarily continue isolating terrorism suspects at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Justice Sandra Day O'Connor granted a request from the Bush administration to stop a lower court from communicating with a detainee at the base.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had planned to notify the detainee, Falen Gherebi, of the court's ruling in December that Guantanamo prisoners should be allowed to see lawyers and have access to courts.
