Supreme Court Won’t Rule on Gitmo Inmates’ Rights

Guantanamo Bay detainees hoping to challenge their cases in American courts won’t be aided in their quest by the U.S. Supreme Court, at least for now.  Six of the nine Supreme Court justices have ruled against deciding whether the “anti-terror” law that allows for inmates’ indefinite detention at Camp X-Ray is constitutional.
