Habeas Corpus

November 05, 2018

Steven Collier, a San Francisco lawyer, represented the first public conscientious objector in the Iraq War. He also went up against the federal government and won two habeas corpus proceedings for conscientious objectors. What is habeas corpus? In short, an old writ that protects soldiers and others from being "unlawfully detained." Because when the military denies CO cases, sometimes they do so out of spite or assumption.
