Doe v. Mattis

(United States DC Circuit) – Affirming. Doe is a US citizen in the custody of the Department of Defense after his capture in Syria. He sought to prevent his transfer during the pendancy of a habeas corpus claim since this would place him outside of the court’s jurisdiction. The court affirmed a district court injunction barring the government from transferring Doe to Country B, and the injunction requiring 72 hours notice before transfer to Country A.
