THE NEW DECISION IN THE COURT OF APPEALS

Below is the link to full text of the new ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in the ACLU/Boeing case.
Note that the decision is by a panel of three judges, not the full appeals court: there could be a Justice Department appeal to the full court (with Bybee participating unless he is impeached), and even after that possibly to the Supreme Court.  Nevertheless, this new decision is a milestone in state secrecy litigation and a major step toward learning the truth about extraordinary renditions and the role played by Boeing/Jeppesen.
Even if you skip the parts of the decision on state secrecy law, please read the summaries of what happened to the plaintiffs:  a strong example of the axiom that “the Devil is in the details,” in this case the gruesome details of diabolical torture with help from Boeing/Jeppesen.
