A Florida waiter detained in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether a federal judge in Miami and the 11th Circuit abused their discretion by sealing his case without explanation. In an unusual move, the public copy of Mohamed Kamel Bellahouel's petition to the Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari is heavily censored, with entire pages blanked out. A complete copy was filed under seal for justices' eyes only.
