CONSOLIDATED STATUS REPORT Pursuant to this Court's December 17, 2008 Order, the Government has attached two exhibits constituting a consolidated status report for the above-captioned cases. See e.g., Order of Dec. 17 (1:05-CV-2104, dkt. no. 113). Exhibit A is a chart containing the full name, ISN, and case number for each petitioner in the above-captioned cases who is currently detained at Guantanamo Bay. The chart also shows the date on which the Government filed a factual return,
as well as whether the Government has provided the petitioner's counsel with an unclassified version of the factual return. Exhibit B is a chart stating the Government's preliminary recommendations for petition consolidation. At present, the Government anticipates that several petitioners in the abovecaptioned cases will fall into three preliminary consolidation groups. The reasons for consolidation include the detainees having similar backgrounds, affiliations, and/or circumstances of capture. 1 Also on December 17, 2008, Judge Hogan ordered the Government to confer with petitioners' counsel in every case consolidated in In Re Guantanamo Bay Detainee Litigation (1:08-MC-0442), including petitioners' counsel in the above-captioned cases, and to submit a joint filing by January 5, 2009, identifying which petitions may be consolidated for merits proceedings. See Order of Dec. 17, 2008 (1:08-MC-0442, dkt. no. 1323). Accordingly, the Government will present updated recommendations for consolidation in that filing.
