NDAA "Indefinite Detention" Temporarily Reinstated By Appeals Court

Follow up on: NDAA "Indefinite Detention" Struck Down, White House Says That "Infringes On Obama's Power" 9-18-12 "...the Justice Department asked the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals to put the ruling on hold, according to Law Blog" --While the attorney for the plaintiffs in the case states that he does not believe that any White House challenge will be successful...the reality is that there is very little reason to expect anything but that...Running it through the entire court system 'for show' and afterwards giving it a SCOTUS stamp-of approval sets it forever in stone.

Appeals Judge Allows Obama Admin. to Enforce ‘Indefinite Detention’ Law

NEW YORK (TheBlaze/AP) — Less than a week after a federal judge in New York ruled against it, an appeals judge has temporarily allowed enforcement of a law that permits the indefinite detention of people believed to have supported terrorists.

Despite U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest’s claim that the “indefinite detention” provision found in the National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 could infringe on First Amendment rights, the Obama administration immediately asked an appeals judge to suspend the ruling.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan order was issued late Monday by Circuit Judge Raymond J. Lohier after the government warned in court papers that the law was necessary in the nation’s battle against terrorism. Lohier said the order would remain in effect until Sept. 28, when a three-judge panel was scheduled to hear arguments on the government’s effort to block a ruling that struck down the law

Plaintiffs’ attorney Carl Mayer said it was “astounding” that Lohier’s order was issued before evidence was presented.
The next leg of what may very well be a journey to SCOTUS to remove permanently every possible avenue of opposition begins on the 28th. In the meantime...the 'disappearing act' has reappeared. fyi
