D.C. Appeals Court Rules Against Former Gitmo Detainees: Lawsuit against Rumsfeld and other gov't officials thrown out

A federal appeals court on Friday ruled against four Muslim British citizens who had claimed they were systematically tortured and their religious rights had been abused throughout their two-year detention at the U.S. government’s terrorist detainment facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Rejecting all the men’s allegations, the appeals court overturned the one claim that hadn’t already been dismissed by a lower court.

The appellate judges involved with that decision:

Henderson – nominated by President George H.W. Bush.
Randolph – nominated by President George H.W. Bush.
Brown – nominated by President George W. Bush.
