ABSTRACT
The article investigates the judicial embrace of complexity in the setting of Guant�namo-related litigation. It explores several key judicial decisions suggesting post-9/11 detention at Guant�namo to show how courts have avoided delving deeply into the factors of time and space while focusing on the factor of means. It also cites institutional reasons for this emphasis on the factor of means, including the evasion of issues potentially deemed political questions, and the avoidance of possible conflict with other branches.
