In New York City the Second Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments on U.S. Department of Defense v. the Associated Press. The Court must decide if the Pentagon has to release the identities of Guantanamo Bay detainees. The case stems from a 2007 Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Associated Press (AP). The government turned over transcripts from the tribunals but redacted facts about each detainee’s identity. In March 2008 a U.S. district judge rejected the government’s argument that the detainees' names should be kept secret to protect their privacy rights and ordered the government to give unredacted copies of the hearings to the Associated Press. close
