Stonewalling on CIA Abuses in Europe
http://writ.news.findlaw.com/mariner/20051207.html

FindLaw columnist and human rights attorney Joanne Mariner discusses Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's refusal to provide a substantive, factual response to the European Union's request for details regarding possible Europe-related activities of the reported CIA secret prison network. The EU's request comes in the context of its inquiry to figure out whether international law was violated, within its jurisdiction, in connection with the network. Rice did promise that the U.S. would not use torture -- but Mariner argues that this promise offers only cold comfort, in light of the U.S.'s current, narrow definition of what counts as torture, and of the scope of the relevant treaties.

Why Did the Fourth Circuit Suggest it Might Vacate its Decision In the Case of Alleged Dirty Bomb Conspirator Jose Padilla?
FindLaw guest columnist Jennifer Van Bergen, a journalist with a law degree, discusses possible reasons for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit's recent, surprising decision to ask for briefing in the Jose Padilla case. Padilla is the federal detainee who was originally said to be a dirty-bomb co-conspirator, and then indicted, recently, on separate charges. The Fourth Circuit asked for briefing on whether it should vacate its decision upholding Padilla's three-and-a-half-year detention in light of the change in the government's rationale for detention.
