Petitioners, 



v. 



GEORGE W. BUSH, et al, 



Respondents. 



Civil Action No. 05-1458 (ESH) 



ORDER 

Upon petitioners' Renewed Motion for Entry of the Protective Order, it is hereby 

ORDERED that the Court ENTERS by way of reference the November 8, 2004 
Amended Protective Order and Procedures for Counsel Access to Detainees at the United States 
Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; the November 10, 2004 Order Addressing Designation 
Procedures for "Protected Information;" and the December 13, 2004 Order Supplementing and 
Amending Filing Procedures Contained in November 8, 2004 Amended Protective Order, each 
issued by Judge Joyce Hens Green in In re Guantanamo Bay Detainee Cases, No. 02-cv-0299, et 
al.; and it is 

FURTHER ORDERED that all motions pertaining to interpretation or 
construction of the protective orders shall be referred to Magistrate Judge Alan Kay pursuant to 
LCvR 72.2(a); and it is 

FURTHER ORDERED that all disputes pertaining to logistical issues, such 
as communications with or visits to petitioner and counsel, shall be referred to Magistrate Judge

Case1:05-cv-01458-UNA-AK Document 25 Filed 07/27/2006 Page 2 of 2 

FURTHER ORDERED that to the extent the government's position is that the Court 
has no jurisdiction to enter a protective order because of the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005, 
Pub. L. 109-148, 119 Stat. 2739, or that its prior order staying this matter precludes the Court 
from entering such an order, the Court rejects these arguments and adopts the reasoning of 
Haleem v. Bush, Civ. No. 05-2376 (D.D.C. Jun. 30, 2006) (Order), Nasrullah v. Bush, Civ. No. 
05-0891 (D.D.C. Jun. 12. 2006) (Order), and cases cited therein. 

SO ORDERED.
