Judges reject interrogation evidence in Gitmo cases

Judges reject interrogation evidence in Gitmo cases
August 16, 2010 --

The federal government has lost eight of 15 cases in which Guantánamo inmates have said they or witnesses against them were forcibly interrogated. That’s according to a review of 31 published decisions that resolve lawsuits filed by 52 captives who said they’ve been wrongfully detained. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly and others rejected government evidence because of interrogation tactics ranging from verbal threats to physical abuse they called torture. More than 50 such lawsuits are still pending, two years after the U.S. Supreme Court gave Guantánamo inmates the green light to challenge their detention in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

DeKalb County denied disabled students access to school facilities and services and then fired a teacher who complained about it, the teacher claims in a lawsuit filed this week in federal court. Social studies teacher Gordon Rolle says he was fired from Martin Luther King Jr. High School in Lithonia when he complained about issues involving textbooks, testing for conditions such as autism and access to bathrooms, the media center, counselors and field trips.
