al-Nashiri Limburg interlocutory appeal update

The prosecution has now filed its reply brief in its interlocutory appeal from the order dismissing the MV Limburg-related charges.  Attorneys for al-Nashiri have filed a sur-reply brief.  And the Court of Military Commission Review has scheduled oral argument for 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 13, in Courtroom 201 of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, 717 Madison Place, D.C.

I’ve blogged extensively regarding the questions on appeal here and here.
