[Guest post by DRJ]

Earlier this week, Abu Zubaydah filed a Petition for Immediate Release from GTMO that asks the DC Court of Appeals to review and declare invalid his designation as an enemy combatant and challenges his hearings before the Combatant Status Review Tribunal.

Zubaydah also reserved the right to contest the Constitutionality of the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005 and to pursue a writ of habeas corpus in the US District Court.
