Barhoumi v. Obama (D.D.C. Sep. 3, 2009)

* Barhoumi v. Obama (D.D.C. Sep. 3, 2009)

This one is three weeks old, but I did not learn of it till today and am not aware of any media coverage of it.  In any event, in the attached order Judge Collyer grants judgment on the record against a GTMO detainee, denying Barhoumi’s habeas petition. There is no discussion in the order of why the petitioner lost, and I don’t have the underlying motion papers that would shed light on what apparently was a strong government case.  It may be that the government’s submissions were sealed, of course.
