Judge dismisses scores of Guantanamo habeas cases

The judge said that because the 105 cases had been filed by Guantanamo captives who've been released or transferred to other countries, there was no need to decide if they'd been held illegally. The decision disappointed defense attorneys, who said a U.S. court decision in their clients' favor would have helped lift the stigma and other restrictions their clients face because of their Guantanamo detention.
