MSNBC quotes Lecturer in Law Thomas C. Goldstein on the possibility of moving Guantanamo inmates to military prisons within the United States:

Tom Goldstein, an attorney at the Washington law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld who often argues cases before the high court, said that the Court’s unexpected decision to put Guantanamo on its fall docket “will spur the administration to close the detention facility …. The administration is going to see the handwriting on the wall, that the Supreme Court would not have stepped into this area if it didn’t believe there was a problem.”
