The Supreme Court Has Spoken – What Next?

2 West 64th Street at Central Park West
New York City


On June 12, 2008, the Supreme Court issued a historic ruling in the combined cases of Boumediene v. Bush and Al Odah v. United States, affirming the Constitutional right of Guantánamo detainees to challenge their detention in the federal courts and undoing the attempts of the Bush administration and Congress to suspend the fundamental right of habeas corpus.

After this important decision, what does the future hold for Guantánamo’s detainees? For the law? For the U.S.?

In its first 100 days, the next president’s administration must not only take action to close Guantánamo, but also address the broader array of attacks on our Constitution and our rights that have taken place – from warrantless wiretapping, to the criminalization of activists, to the unprecedented expansion of executive power. Hear about CCR’s blueprint for the First 100 days and our exciting new campaign.

Featured speakers:
• Vincent Warren, Executive Director, CCR
• Stephen Abraham, Guantánamo whistleblower, attorney, and U.S. Army reserve officer who served on a military “combatant status review tribunal”
• Baher Azmy, Professor of Law, Seton Hall University and habeas counsel to Guantánamo detainees
• Pardiss Kebriaei, Staff Attorney, Guantánamo Global Justice Initiative, CCR
Moderated by Annette Warren Dickerson, Director of Education and Outreach, CCR

Join the Center for Constitutional Rights for penetrating analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision, the future for Guantánamo’s detainees, and a vision for moving forward, beyond Guantánamo.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP’s required. Contact or 212-614-6443 with any other questions.
