The American Bar Association Standing Committee.
The American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security has published "Trying Terrorists in Article III Courts," a new white paper produced by a group of 33 legal experts, scholars and practitioners in the field of national security on the development of policies for the detention and subsequent trial of detainees involved in counterterrorism operations. The report discusses issues concerning classified and sensitive evidence, challenges arising from the application of constitutional procedural and federal evidentiary rules to terrorism trials, and problems of trial management and security. It is the second report of the Standing Committee's "Due Process and Terrorism" series. The third report titled "Exploring Counterterrorism Detention Alternatives" will be released in August.
