Judges Reject Interrogation Evidence in Gitmo Cases

The government has lost eight of 15 cases in which Guantánamo inmates have said they or witnesses against them were forcibly interrogated, according to ProPublica‘s review of 31  published decisions that resolve lawsuits filed by 52 captives who said they’ve been wrongfully detained. Because some of the judges’ opinions are heavily redacted, it’s impossible to be sure there aren’t more cases in which the government offered interrogation evidence collected under questionable  circumstances. More than 50 such lawsuits are still pending, two years  after the U.S. Supreme Court gave Guantánamo inmates the green light to  challenge their detention in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
