On February 19, 2002, attorney Tom Wilner joined forces with several other attorneys “in filing the first civil motion in the federal district court in Washington on behalf of the next of kin of several Guantanamo detainees, asking for some kind of due process. The case, filed as Shafiq Rasul and others v. George W. Bush…asked for some sort of fair hearing to make sure that they were in fact enemy combatants. It also asked for the detainees to get some legal representation in the proposed process, and some access to their family members.”
