AILC is an annual case law reporter that provides the full text of U.S. court opinions involving international law issues. The courts covered include all U.S. federal district courts, federal appellate courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as some state courts, the U.S. Court of Claims,the U.S. Court of International Trade, and the U.S. Tax Court. The series seeks to provide not every single case in which a court refers to international law but rather all cases that analyze at least one international law issue in depth. The list of subjects addressed by these volumes is vast and changes from year to year, with the inclusion and prominence of most topics turning on their prevalence in a given year's jurisprudence. Some consistently prominent topics are personal jurisdiction over foreign defendants, deportationprocedure, and double taxation. Over the last three editions (2006, 2007, and 2008), many topics have developed rapidly and constitute a correspondingly larger portion of the volumes, particularly Terrorism, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, Forum Non Conveniens, and an entirely new, addedtopic: the National Security Exception (to deportation eligibility). The 2008 edition of AILC also features expanded sections on family law and on the detention of terrorist suspects. The U.S. war on terror and the crisis at Guantanamo have made that last topic a significant and dynamic component ofAILC. Each edition of AILC also comes framed with two practical resources for students and scholars. The first is an introductory editor's note that both reviews international law's major developments for the given year and explains to readers how to use the volumes. The second is a subject indexto allow for targeted research. Volume Eight of AILC involves issues involving aliens, such as deportation, extradition, aiding and transporting illegal aliens, and border entry. It also includes issues in international courts and issues surrounding war, belligerency, and neutrality. In Gherebi v. Obama, the petitioners,detainees at Guantanamo Bay, challenge the legality of their confinement by the government, seeking the issuance of writs of habeas corpus to secure their release from detention. The issue was whether the President has the authority to detain individuals as part of its ongoing military campaignagainst al-Quaeda and, if so, what is the scope of that authority. In Vinyls, Inc. v. United States, the issue was whether the Court of International Trade correctly concluded that the imported product, whose textile component is made entirely of man-made fibers, is a "product with textilecomponents in which man-made fibers predominate by weight over another single textile fiber." The court concluded that the Court of International Trade Correctly classified the subject goods.
