FURTHER NOTICE OF ACTIVITY IN GUANTÁNAMO CASES

Petitioners respectfully submit this further notice of activity in Guantánamo cases. This

recent activity underscores the appropriateness of granting petitioners’ pending stay-and-abey

motions and denying the government’s pending motions to dismiss. As petitioners discussed in





Case 1:05-cv-01429-UNA Document 83 Filed 07/03/2007 Page 2 of 2

their previous notice of recent activity, that disposition of the motions is permitted by the Court

of Appeals’ order of June 7, 2007 in Al Ginco.

On June 29, 2007, the Supreme Court granted the petitions for certiorari in Boumediene

v. Bush, 476 F.3d 981 (D.C. Cir. 2007). The possibility that the Supreme Court will reverse the

Court of Appeals’ decision and permit petitioners to pursue their habeas actions militates in favor

of staying these actions at least until the Supreme Court decides Boumediene. Presumably be-

cause it granted certiorari in Boumediene, the Supreme Court has also withheld action on the

original habeas petition in In re Ali, S. Ct. No. 06-1194, which also challenges the Court of Ap-

peals’ decision in Boumediene. Finally, petitioners in Al Odah and Paracha have asked the

Court of Appeals to recall the mandates in those cases and stay the mandates pending the Su-

preme Court’s disposition of Boumediene. A copy of the motion to recall is attached.

Respectfully submitted,
