Former government officials from the George W. Bush administration once again urged the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider a Second Circuit panel decision that revived claims over alleged civil rights violations from immigrants detained after 9/11.

Three ex-federal officials and two from a detention center who brought three separate petitions to the high court are pushing back against an opposition brief from detained immigrants who say the Second Circuit rightfully brought back their case.

The case involves three petitions to the high court: one from ex-Attorney General John Ashcroft and ex-FBI director Robert Mueller, one from ex-Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner James Ziglar, and one from Dennis Hasty and James Sherman, respectively the former warden and associate warden of the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, where the plaintiffs were held. Court records show that all three parties filed reply briefs in the past week. Ziglar is represented by William Alden McDaniel Jr. and Michelle M. McGeogh of Ballard Spahr LLP.
