Ashcroft v. Al-Kidd

Lawfare blog reports that the respondent’s merits brief recently became available in Ashcroft v. Al-Kidd, the case challenging whether John Ashcroft can be sued in his personal capacity for misuse of the material witness statute (18 U.S.C. § 3144).

In December the government–the petitioner in this case–filed its merits brief. That was followed on January 21st by the response brief of Al-Kidd, who won his case at the Ninth Circuit.

The case is set for oral argument at the Court on Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
