Summary

Federal courts heard hundreds of habeas corpus petitions by Guantánamo detainees (until the Republican Congress closed that avenue of redress). An analysis of both the language of the judges and their votes reveals a dramatic difference between those loyal to basic rule of law principles and those willing, even eager, to bow to executive diktat.
