UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
April 15, 2009
MOAMMAR BADAWI DOKHAN, ET AL., PETITIONERS,
GEORGE W. BUSH, ET AL., RESPONDENTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: John D. Bates United States District Judge
Upon consideration of  petitioner's motion to compel production of the declassified factual return,  respondents' opposition thereto, and the entire record herein, it is hereby ORDERED that respondents shall produce the declassified return to petitioner's counsel by not later than April 22, 2009. Although the return is not due until April 24, 2009 under § I.A of the Case Management Order, respondents recognize that petitioner's counsel, Kristine Huskey, must be able to discuss the declassified return with petitioner when Ms. Huskey meets with him on April 23, 2009. But respondents' proposal -- that the declassified return be produced on the date of her meeting -- does little to abate that concern because it does not provide Ms. Huskey with an opportunity to review the declassified return before meeting with petitioner. Production on April 22, 2009, however, will give Ms. Huskey that opportunity without overly burdening respondents. In producing the declassified return, respondents shall coordinate with Ms. Huskey to take into account her travel schedule to Guantanamo Bay.
