On December 14, Ginsburg denied their request. She claimed it improper to interfere with appeals judges expediting their ongoing review. She said caution should be exercised in light of nullifying a lower court ruling.

A Final Comment
On May 18, the House passed the 2013 NDAA 299 - 120.
On December 21, the Senate followed suit 81 - 14.
Obama will choose time and place to enact it. Doing so is criminal lawlessness. Malfeasance comes easy to him. He's a serial war criminal.
Both Houses trashed international and constitutional law. They further institutionalized imperial wars.
They also endorsed locking up US citizens and permanent residents uncharged. They favor holding them indefinitely in military prisons.
They support denying them due process and judicial fairness. They judge them guilty by accusation.
Tyranny came one step closer to full-blown. Its full force could arrive any time.
