Here is a link to the new Civilian Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (CEJA) Bill (S.2598/H.R.5096) introduced last week by Congressman David Price (D-N.C.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)—with a number of Senate co-sponsors. The bill has been referred to the House and Senate Judiciary committees.
The new bill looks a lot like the prior CEJA introduction, S.2979 (2010) (prior coverage here and here), but there are very interesting changes in the new bill that are worthy of discussion. I’ve posted a quick and dirty blackline comparing the text of S.2598 to S.2979, here. More on the changes later.
