Next few tweets are about today’s hearing on @theCCR lawsuit challenging secrecy in #Manning court martial. #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
Argument went well but it’s unclear whether court will decide on this issue. #Manning #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
CAAF court concerned about whether they (vs district court) is proper place to litigate this. #Manning #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
On jurisdiction, CAAF court is particularly worried about Clinton v Goldsmith decided by #SCOTUS
The CCR @theCCR
Court did ask Gov the right questions: Why are you forcing us to make a 1st amend ruling you won’t like? #Manning #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
Court to Gov: What is the point of public access to court martial if public can’t know what’s being argued? #Manning #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
Gov concedes there’s 1st amend ground for public access to #Manning trial. Court: then why not be reasonable and grand access to docs?
The CCR @theCCR
Gov position: "absolutely nothing" wrong w public access to #Manning docs but gov won't provide them b/c it's not legally required to do so
The CCR @theCCR
Gov also says Judge Lind cannot order disclosure of docs. Gov says @theCCR needs to file a FOIA request in order to access #Manning docs..
The CCR @theCCR
@theCCR Shayana Kadidal argues contemporaneous public access to #Manning trial is necessary for fact correction and truth telling. #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
Court: Theres whats constitutionally required & what’s not then theres whats simple/reasonable such as providing requested docs re #Manning
The CCR @theCCR
Gov argues court doesn't have jurisdiction b/c @theCCR didn't ask right person for #Manning docs so technically request hasn't been denied..
The CCR @theCCR
@theCCR argued it would be enough for CAAF to affirm public right of access to court martial & leave to trial courts to implement. #Manning
The CCR @theCCR
CAAF Court will order supplemental briefing on jurisdiction issues. @theCCR will have 10 days to respond after that. #Manning #FreeBrad
The CCR @theCCR
Half way through hearing Gov actually agreed there's been greater access to #Guantanamo military commissions than to #Manning trial...
