U.S. Supreme Court Rules For Officials Sued Over Post-September 11th Detention

Reuters has reported that on Monday the U.S. Supreme Court handed a victory to former President George W. Bush’s attorney general, FBI chief and others, ruling they cannot be sued over the treatment of detainees, mainly Muslims, rounded up in New York after the September 11th 2001, attacks. The justices, in a 4-2 decision, reversed a lower court’s decision that the long-running suit brought by the detainees could proceed against former Attorney General John Ashcroft and former FBI Director Robert Mueller. Mueller now the special counsel investigating possible collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign team in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Three of the justices did not participate in the ruling.
