The Reform movement and two national Jewish groups support the right of terrorism detainees to judicial review. The movement joined the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee and a range of human rights groups in filing a brief Jan. 14 with the Supreme Court supporting the right of the detainees to claim “habeas corpus ” — the violation through extended detention without charges of their right to trial. Some of the detainees have been held at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay for two years since their capture in Afghanistan.
