Judge Orders Release of 18 Chinese Muslims Detained at Gitmo

"A federal judge has ordered the government to release a group of 17 Chinese Muslims held at Guantanamo Bay into the United States, and to present them in his courtroom at 10 a.m. this Friday for a handover to local caretakers." For more, see SCOTUSBLOG.

UPDATE:  On Wednesday, the D.C. Circuit stayed the district court's order.  We will let you know what happens next.
