|Boumediene v. Bush|
|Court||Supreme Court of the United States|
|Date decided||June 12, 2008|
The Combatant Status Review Tribunals (CSRT) for detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp (Guantanamo) are procedurally inadequate as a substitute for a habeas corpus hearing.
The Military Commissions Act of 2006 is unconstitutional.
After this ruling, Guantanamo detainees can challenge their detentions in a federal district court in Washington DC.
