Resp'ts' Mem. at 1; see Hamlily v. Obama, Civ.A.No. 05-0763 (dkt. ent. #175). Accordingly, petitioners in the above-captioned cases shall have the opportunity to respond to the Government's memorandum and likewise to refine their positions on the scope of the Government's detention authority relative to those persons held at Guantanamo Bay.

The Court will also set a tentative date for oral argument on this issue. This joint hearing may be subject to change or cancellation by further order of the Court pending petitioners' submissions.

Therefore, it is hereby ORDERED that by not later than March 27, 2009, petitioners shall respond to respondents' March 13, 2009 memorandum and submit any refinement of their position on the appropriate scope of the Government's detention authority with respect to those persons being held at Guantanamo Bay; it is further

ORDERED that if three or more petitioners file a joint submission, then it shall be limited to fifteen (15) pages in length. Individual submissions and joint submissions by two petitioners shall be limited to eight (8) pages in length; and it is further
