EX PARTE QUIRIN PDF

Ex Parte Quirin, U. Presentation to the District Court of the United States for the District of Columbia of a petition for habeas corpus was the institution of a suit, and denial by that court of leave to file the petition was a judicial determination of a case or controversy reviewable by appeal to the U.

In time of war between the United States and Germany, petitioners, wearing German military uniforms and carrying explosives, fuses, and incendiary and time devices, were landed from German submarines in the hours of darkness, at places on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Thereupon they buried the uniforms and supplies, and proceeded, in civilian dress, to various places in the United States. All had received instructions in Germany from an officer of the German High Command to destroy war industries and war facilities in the United States, for which they or their relatives in Germany were to receive salary payments from the German Government.

Supreme Court on July 31, , unanimously ruled to allow the military, instead of civil courts, to try foreign nationals from enemy countries caught entering the United States to commit destructive acts. The case of Ex Parte Quirin stemmed from a failed Nazi plan, known as Operation Pastorius, in which German submarines put two teams of infiltrators ashore in New York and Florida to sabotage defense-related industries in the United States.

All of the saboteurs had been born in Germany , lived in the United States, and then returned to their homeland. However, before they could strike, one of the participants foiled the plot by revealing the details to the FBI.

The eight saboteurs who had already entered the United States were subsequently arrested. In a unanimous but highly debated decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the detainees did not have a right to a trial by jury. The Germans were convicted by a military tribunal, and six were executed. The others served almost six years in prison before being deported to Germany.

Some legal scholars claimed that the ruling in Ex Parte Quirin ran counter to Ex Parte Milligan , which prohibited military courts from trying enemy nationals if civilian courts were available.
