Description

She went before the Supreme Court and won. In 2004, she successfully argued that detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be able to challenge their detention in US federal court. This case, The New York Times wrote, was "the most important civil liberties case in half a century."

Olshansky recently left the Center for Constitutional Rights for the Stanford Law School's International Law Clinic Program, where she helped to create an International Human Rights Program. She is engaged in the International Justice Network. Olshansky is the author of Democracy Detained; Secret Unconstitutional Practices in the US War on Terror and Secret Trials and Executions: Military Tribunals and the Threat to Democracy and co-author of America's Disappeared: Secret Imprisonment, Detainees, and the "War on Terror."
