The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today entered an order setting down for hearing two cases arising from a military commission being tried at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In re Al-Nashiri and In re Spears & Eliades will be heard on January 22, 2019 before Judges Judith W. Rogers, David S. Tatel and Thomas B. Griffith. Al-Nashiri concerns a military judge's participation while he was negotiating for a job with the Department of Justice as an immigration judge. Spears & Eliades concerns whether two defense attorneys were justified in withdrawing.

Full disclosure: the editor is one of the counsel for the Ethics Bureau at Yale (EBaY), which filed a brief as amicus curiae in al-Nashiri.
