SCOTUS rejects Gitmo military courts

In HAMDAN v. RUMSFELD, the Supremes, in a 5-3 vote, said the military tribunals set up to try suspected terrorists violated both U.S. military law and the Geneva Conventions.

A news article on the decision can be found here.

Over at SCOTUS Blog, there is excellent commentary on the decision.
