Sandefur Explains the Hamdan Ruling

Reading and understanding court rulings can sometimes be difficult. When that ruling is 185 pages long and has multiple concurrences and dissents, it can be downright confusing. Sandefur has done us all a favor and posted a series of essays explaining what the ruling means over at Positive Liberty. Even if you’ve read the ruling, as I have most of it, this will likely help you understand what it all means. Here are the posts:

Part 1: The majority opinion
Part 2: Kennedy’s concurring opinion
Part 3: Scalia’s dissenting opinion
Part 4: Thomas’ dissent
Part 5: Alito’s dissent
