The Supreme Court heard oral argument in the consolidated cases Ziglar v. Abbasi, Ashcroft v. Abbasi and Hasty v. Abbasi, which concern whether Arabs and Muslims detained for immigration infractions after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks may sue George W. Bush administration officials for civil rights violations during their detentions.

After the September 11 attacks, government officials arrested more than 750 people for immigration violations including the eight Muslim men in these cases. They were held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, New York, for up to eight months under harsh conditions, including sleep deprivation, denial of basic hygiene items, and strip searches.

Justices Sotomayor and Kagan recused themselves as they took part in these cases in prior proceedings.

On June 19 2017, the court ruled 4-2 that the plaintiffs could not sue. close
