I'm not sure if the deadline for voting on resolutions has passed, but 
everyone should be reading today's opinion(s) in Hamdan.  In particular, the 
majority opinion SERIOUSLY limits the scope of the Quirin decision (esp. on 
pages 28-30).  I would guess that negative teams, in particular, will now 
have serious uniqueness problems in debating against a Quirin Aff.

You can read the opinions from the SCOTUS's website:
