Justices Won’t Hear Torture Appeal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A German citizen who says he was
kidnapped, imprisoned and tortured by the CIA lost his appeal
on Tuesday when the Supreme Court refused to review a decision
dismissing the case because it would expose state secrets.

Attorneys for Khaled el-Masri, a German of Lebanese
descent, argued in the high court appeal that his lawsuit did
not depend on the disclosure of state secrets and that it
should be allowed to go forward in U.S. court.
