Jose Padilla was Up to No Good and No He Can’t Get Out!

The US Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from dirty bomb suspect Jose Padilla.

Court refuses to hear Padilla appeal

The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear the appeal of Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen held for more than three years as an “enemy combatant.” The Court, however, declined to dismiss the case as moot, as the Bush Administration had urged. Only three Justices voted to hear the case, according to the order.

Three other Justices took the unusual step of issuing an opinion to justify the denial of review. They said that “there are strong prudential reasons disfavoring” Court review.

Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. and Justice John Paul Stevens all told Mr. Padilla “NO”.

The Liberals who wanted to hear this case and probably would have allowed this enemy combatant to walk the streets again are Justices Stephen G. Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and David H. Souter.

    The decision not to hear the case puts aside, for now, legal fights over the extent of the President’s wartime powers.
