Jose Padilla's Motion to Dismiss
The Southern District of Florida Blog details Jose Padilla's Motion to Dismiss for Outrageous Government Conduct. It's well-worth reading for Padilla's factual recitation of what was done to him during his three years of confinement. I especially like the introduction:
"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil 89 (Walter Kaufmann trans., Vintage Books 1966) (1886).\
Legal reporter Vanessa Blum covers the motion here.\
Update: The motion itself is here.
