Supreme Court ruling could free scores from Guantanamo

Within hours of the court's decision granting Guantanamo detainees access to federal courts, attorneys were preparing to demand hearings for detainees long held without charges.

Some attorneys think that the administration simply will start releasing detainees to avoid the potentially embarrassing hearings altogether.
