Court Bars Transfer of Padilla To Face New Terrorism Charges

Date: December 22, 2005
Author: Jerry Markon
QUOTE: A federal appeals court yesterday refused to authorize the transfer of "enemy combatant" Jose Padilla to face new criminal charges, issuing a strongly worded opinion rebuking the Bush administration and its handling of the high-profile terrorism case. The same court that had granted the administration wide latitude in holding Padilla without charges or a court appearance now is suggesting that the detention was a mistake.
