Federal Judge Blocks “Indefinite Detention” Provision of the National Defense Authorization Act

“U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest in Manhattan has temporarily blocked enforcement of a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act concerning the detention of terrorism suspects that passed through Congress last year. The Obama appointee ruled that Section 1021 of the law likely violates free press and due process rights guaranteed by the First and Fifth Amendment.

This comes as good news for a wide ranging coalition of journalists, activists, conservatives, and libertarians who have been seeking to have the bill overturned. The multi-billion dollar defense funding bill sparked the debate last year as opponents warned that provisions in the NDAA of 2012 could allow the military to detain terrorism suspects on U.S. soil without charge or trial, even if they were U.S. citizens.”
