Important Development in the Padilla Case

Nobody saw this one coming: The Fourth Circuit shows some serious moxie and asks for briefs as to whether it should vacate its (awful) decision as moot; this will make the government put up or shut up as to whether it plans to waive any claim to label Padilla as an ‘enemy combatant’ in the future.

See SCOTUSblog: Government rebuffed on Padilla for the details.
