Obama Administration Wins Stay of Detention Law Rejection
The U.S. government won a temporary delay of a lower court ruling striking down a military detention law as unconstitutional.
U.S. Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier in New York today granted a Justice Department request for an interim stay of the Sept. 12 ruling. The government argued that the decision, which imposed a permanent injunction barring enforcement of the law, poses a threat to national security.
In a one-page order today, Lohier delayed the ruling until Sept. 28, when a three-judge panel of the appeals court will consider whether to extend the stay.
