Jose Padilla on the offensive
The Federal Defender's Office has filed a number of motions on Jose Padilla's behalf, including a motion to dismiss for pre-indictment delay, a motion to dismiss for a violation of Padilla's speedy trial rights, and a motion to dismiss for outrageous government conduct. The motions have some extreme allegations, including saying the Padilla was tortured for three years because he was held in complete isolation. More to come after I've read them all.
