returns for Petitioners marked as a.-o. Some of those returns are redacted.

1592).



2. Redacted Returns Issue

On January 31, 2005, the District Court ordered the government to

provide counsel for Petitioners with information that the government had re-

dacted from the returns thus far provided, finding the information “relevant

to the merits of this litigation.” In re Guantánamo Detainee Cases, Jan. 31,

2005 Order (Doc. 100 in Abdah v. Bush, 04-cv-1254). The government ap-
