Scous_seal

In a 5-3 decision by Justice Alito, the Supreme Court reversed and remanded the decision of the Ninth Circuit in Jennings v. Rodriguez. It ruled that detained aliens do not have a right to periodic bond hearings during the course of their detention. Justice Breyer, joined by Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor, wrote a lengthy dissent.  Justice Kagan recused herself from the case.
