RESPONDENTS' STATUS REPORTS AND 
RESPONSE TO COURTS TULY 11 2D06ORDER 



Case1:05-cv-01458-UNA-AK Document 47 Filed 07/18/2008 Page 2 of 3 

Pursuant to the Court's July 11, 2008 Scheduling Order calling for individual status 
reports in the above- captioned cases, attached hereto as Exhibit 1 are individual status reports 
concerning 150 petitioners in the above-captioned cases whom respondents have identified and 
who are currently detained at Guantanamo Bay. The reports are organized in the order of civil 
action number. Subject to the gualifications noted below, each report discusses one detainee- 
petitioner and an index of all the detainee- petitioners (listing their Internment Serial Numbers 
and civil action numbers, organized both in numerical order and by judge) is found at the 
beginning of Exhibit 1. 

With respect to cases involving multiple petitioners, and excluding Mohammon v. Bush, 
05-CV-2386 (RBW) and A l-Hal ma ndy v. Bush, 05-CV-2385 (RMU) - two cases involving 
exceptionally large numbers of petitioners - a separate status report is provided for each 
individual petitioner currently detained at Guantanamo Bay. Further, respondents have noted the 
existence of duplicate habeas corpus petitions filed by the petitioner, if any, in the caption of 
each individual status report, but note for purposes of clarity that the first- listed case in the 
caption is the operative petition addressed in the report and, accordingly, the report provides 
information about the status of that particular case. With respect to Al-Halmandy and 
Mohammon, respondents have submitted one combined status report for each case. Additionally, 
because the approximately 200 petitioners in Al-Halmandy and Mohammon account for the 
majority of duplicate petitions filed in these cases, respondents also intend to address the status 
of the duplicate petitioners in the joint report that the Court has directed the parties to file 
relating, inter alia, to that issue, on July 21, 2008. 

Respondents have not prepared individual status reports for two categories of petitioners 
due to the unigue status of these petitioners. First, respondents have not been able to identify a

number of petitioners in the above-captioned cases as current or former detainees at Guantanamo 
Bay. A list of these petitioners is attached hereto as Exhibit 2. Because these petitioners have 
not been identified as Guantanamo Bay detainees, the petitions should be dismissed. Second, a 
large number of petitioners whom respondents have identified are no longer detained at 
Guantanamo Bay. A list of these petitioners is attached hereto as Exhibit 3. In light of these 
petitioners' release from United States custody, the claims of these petitioners should be 
dismissed as moot. Indeed, some of these petitions were previously dismissed by the judges 
originally assigned to handle the cases. Respondents' position is that all of these previously- 
dismissed cases should remain dismissed and all pending petitions brought by or on behalf of 
petitioners listed on Exhibit 3 should be dismissed as to such petitioners as moot.
