Professors Circulate Statement Opposing Use of Military Tribunals
Yale Law School Professors Judith Resnik and Bruce Ackerman joined with their colleagues David Cole, Georgetown University Law Center, Rosa Ehrenreich Brooks, University of Virginia School of Law, and Deena Hurwitz, University of Virginia School of Law, to circulate a statement that was signed by 450 law professors around the country urging the Supreme Court to grant review of Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, a case challenging the President's creation of military commissions to try individuals that the President designates as suspected "unlawful combatants." The professors also sent a letter to Senators Arlen Specter and Patrick Leahy, the Chair and Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, calling for hearings on the issue of military commissions.
