Detainee Loses Case Against Bush Officials

Ad Feedback

The Supreme Court says a former 9/11 detainee can not sue Bush administration officials for alleged abusive treatment.

The Pakistani Muslim was held in solitary confinement in a New York prison for nearly six months after the terrorist attacks.

He claims former Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft and FBI Director Robert Mueller were responsible for his mistreatment because of his religious beliefs.

Still, 5-4 decision Monday, the Supreme Court ruled there was nothing linking Ashcroft and Mueller to the detainee's claims.

In his dissent, retiring Justice David Souter said the court wrongly rejected the possibility that the Bush officials could have been liable.
