U.S. Appeals Order Blocking NDAA U.S. Military Detention LawBy Bob Van Voris
Sep. 14, 2012
The U.S. appealed an order permanently blocking enforcement of a law that opponents claim may subject them to indefinite military detention for activities including news reporting and political activism.
Lawyers from the office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan today filed papers seeking review of yesterday’s ruling on the law, which is part of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2012. In the ruling, U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest said the law is unconstitutionally vague.
