BOWLING GREEN, NY — The case, Hedges v. Obama, challenged the constitutionality of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which allows for indefinite detention of anyone accused of terrorism, even American citizens, without a trial. The Supreme Court put the final nail in this suit by denying to hear the case, without comment.
