The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is weighing a request from the Department of Justice to redact the transcript of an oral argument involving a Guantanamo Bay hearing that occurred in open court.

According to the Blog of LegalTimes (, oral arguments in Kiyemba v. Obama occurred April 22, though only the first half of the arguments was open to the public.  Initially, the appellate court granted the DOJ request to seal the hearing transcript in its entirety, but the government has since asked the court to seal only portions of the transcript of the public arguments.

The appellate court has yet to address its rationale for sealing the transcript.
