Bar challenge to 21st Amendment decision

The Lahore High Court Bar Association has filed a review petition challenging the Supreme Court's recent decision upholding the 21st Amendment that authorized military courts to try civilians in Pakistan. A few details appear here, but this seems a futile effort.

Postscript: This article from Dawn provides additional details. The pleading filed for the Lahore H.C. Bar seems to be in the nature of a petition for rehearing.
