This book tells the story of how Yale law students and human rights lawyers teamed up in the early 1990s to take on the U.S. Government. 300 Haitian refugees were being held in secret Guantanamo Bay detention camps because they were HIV positive. The team of students and lawyers sued the government for their release, and won the case. The story is especially relevant in the post- 9/11 world, where Guantanamo Bay is once again a prominent example of government abuse.
