Jared Goldstein, Professor of Law at Roger Williams University, was a leading attorney for the defense of a group of Guantanamo Bay detainees before the Supreme Court. His case, Rasul v. Bush, marked an important precedent granting foreign nationals held at Guantanamo the right to challenge their imprisonment in U.S. court.
