Michael Ratner

At the [[Supreme Court of the United States|U.S. Supreme Court]] Michael Ratner (June 13, 1943 – May 11, 2016) was an American attorney. For much of his career, he was president of the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), a non-profit human rights litigation organization based in New York City, and president of the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) based in Berlin.

Ratner "will be most remembered for filing ''Rasul v. Bush'', the first lawsuit challenging President Bush's wartime detentions." He was co-counsel in representing the Guantanamo Bay detainees in the United States Supreme Court, which ruled for the detainees' right to test the legality of their detentions in US courts, saying that the Guantanamo base was effectively an extension of US territory and covered by US law.

Ratner was a president of the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) and the author of numerous books and articles, including the books ''The Trial of Donald Rumsfeld: A Prosecution by Book'', ''Against War with Iraq,'' and ''Guantanamo: What the World Should Know'', as well as a textbook on international human rights. Ratner was the co-host of the radio program, ''Law and Disorder''. He and three other attorneys hosted a Pacifica Radio show that reported legal developments related to civil liberties, civil rights, and human rights.

Ratner was the brother of Ellen Ratner, a radio talk show host and Fox News contributor, and Bruce Ratner, a real estate developer and former New Jersey Nets majority owner. He was a 1966 graduate of Brandeis University. He received his law degree from Columbia Law School, where he graduated first in his class. Provided by Wikipedia
