WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court refused Monday to let an attorney meet with his client at a Navy prison in Cuba.
Lawyer Stephen Yagman had said he wanted to make sure Falen Gherebi, a Libyan captured in Afghanistan, was not abused at Guantanamo Bay.
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor refused without comment to order a meeting.
Yagman had said in a filing last week that he was concerned Gherebi “may have been or may be subjected to improper treatment at the hands of his captors at Guantanamo Bay.”
