Jennings v. Rodriguez Opinion analysis: Court tees up issue of the constitutionality of indefinite immigration detention for the 9th Circuit
Justice Alito with opinion in Jennings v. Rodriguez (Art Lien)
Here is my summary analysis of the Supreme Court's long-awaited decision in Jennings v. Rodriguez on SCOTUSBlog. Justice Alito's opinion for the majority is unlikely to mark the end of the litigation:
"In some respects, the court’s decision in Jennings v. Rodriguez takes us back to the drawing board. After sparring among themselves over two terms, the justices remanded the case to the 9th Circuit to decide a meaty constitutional question — whether indefinite detention of noncitizens without a bond hearing as authorized by the immigration statute is constitutional."
