Hicks military commission case overturned

A military appeals court on Wednesday threw out the first-ever conviction by a Guantanamo Bay military commission, finding an Australian man’s actions in Afghanistan weren’t a war crime.

The military court undid the conviction of David Hicks, an Australian who traveled to Afghanistan, trained at an al Qaeda camp and met Osama bin Laden .

Here is a link to the decision.
