Father Esam Foaud Hamdi filed a habeas corpus petition to allow him to challenge his detention
Lower courts stated that he could be held indefinetely because he was label as an "enemy combatant"
Is detaining Hamdi, an American citizen, without allowing him access to an attorney and without going through due process on the grounds that he aided the enemy in violation of his 5th amendment right to an attorney and his 14th amendment right of citizenship? Arguments:
Hamdi was caught in arms against the U.S. and can be held as an enemy (Rumsfeld)
Executive Branch can detain Hamdi under AUMF
Fifth Amendment requires that all U.S. citizens have the right to an attorney (Hamdi)
Verdict: (5-3)
People detained as enemy combatants have the right to challenge their detention before a neutral party

Believed that Hamdi's petition for habeas corpus should either be withdrawn or he should by tried in criminal court Significance Hamdi v.
