Amicus Brief Co-Author Lori Bannai on HuffPost Live

Bannai_HuffPost_LiveLorraine Bannai, Director of the Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality at Seattle University School of Law, appeared on a Feb. 19, 2013, segment of HuffPost Live focusing on the Japanese American incarceration and how the NDAA risks repeating history by allowing the government to indefinitely detain American citizens and residents without due process.

Lori was one of the principal authors in the amicus brief filed by the children of families of Fred Korematsu, Minoru Yasui, and Gordon Hirabayashi in Hedges v. Obama, which challenges the constitutionality of the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA.

She was joined by Hiroshi Kashiwagi of San Francisco, who was incarcerated in the Tule Lake Camp; Prof. Bill Ong Hing, a University of San Francisco School of Law Professor; and Carl Mayer of Princeton, N.J., attorney for the plaintiffs in Hedges v. Obama.
