Hamdan and Supreme Court Jurisdiction:
Both Lyle Denniston and Steve Vladeck are blogging about the latest round of briefing in the Hamdan case involving military tribunals at Guantanamo. The briefs address whether the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 denies the Supreme Court jurisdiction over the case. The government's motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction is here; Hamdan's response is here. My prediction: The Court will conclude that it has jurisdiction to reach the merits. My degree of confidence: High.
