With the closing of the Guantánamo Bay detention camp, the Justice Department is evaluating the cases of the remaining 241 detainees, and there are reports some may end up being tried on U.S. soil, perhaps in Manhattan Federal Court. Prof. Joseph King sees that as a strong possibility. “It’s the logical place,” he says. “The Southern District (court) has been the venue in the past for trials like this … The U.S. Marshal’s office, Police Department and the Bureau of Prisons are all used to it. It’s been the leading federal prosecution district for any number of cases.”
