Ziad (Ziyad) Abu Eain Defense [subseries]

In this case, Abu Eain was accused of setting off a bomb in a market area in Tiberias, Israel. The bombing killed two young boys and injured more than thirty others. After the bombing, Eain traveled to Chicago where he was arrested and Israel demanded his extradition. Abu Eain, however, sought a writ of habeas corpus to prevent extradition, claiming that there was little evidence for his crimes and that the bombing was politically motivated. The court determined that the bombing was not related to political upheaval, and that he would be surrendered to Israel upon a warrant.
