"State Secret": Mohamed v. Jeppesen Dataplan case

| | TrackBacks (0)

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to revive a lawsuit challenging a controversial post-Sept. 11 CIA program that flew terrorism suspects to secret prisons.

The appeal asked the court to examine two controversial aspects of the U.S. response to the 9/11 attacks, "the extraordinary rendition" program that sent the suspects to secret prisons and the "state secrets privilege."

The high court has refused several other appeals based on the government's invocation of state secrets to derail lawsuits...

Justice Elena Kagan took no part in the case because she worked on it when she served in the Justice Department.
