SCOTUS ALLOWS PADILLA TRANSFER

A victory for the Bush Administration:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the Bush administration to transfer “enemy combatant” Jose Padilla from U.S. military custody to federal authorities in Florida, where he faces criminal charges.Solicitor General Paul Clement of the Justice Department last month asked for approval to transfer Padilla so he can stand trial on charges of being part of a support cell providing money and recruits for militants overseas.

J. Michael Luttig won’t be pleased.
