Oral Arugments in Hamdi Case

"On Monday, a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit will hear arguments over the legality of Yaser Hamdi's detention.Mr. Hamdi's case appears to be the first in modern American jurisprudence in which an American citizen has been indefinitely detained without charges and without access to a lawyer. As such, it is emerging as the test case for whether the courts, and possibly the United States Supreme Court, will allow such detentions."
