Hamdan v. Rumsfeld
Argument Date: March 28, 2006
Decision Date: June 29, 2006
The Supreme Court held that Congress did not take away the Court's authority to rule on the validity of military commissions, and that President Bush did not have the authority to set up the tribunals at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Court also ruled that military commissions are illegal under both military justice law and the Geneva Convention. Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. recused himself from the case. He heard the case while on the DC Court of Appeals and ruled in favor of the government.

Justice Stevens delivered the opinion of the Court. He's joined by Justices Kennedy, Souter, Ginsburg & Breyer. Dissents: Justices Scalia, Thomas & Alito
