Sam Raymond, an MIT alum and class of 2011 law student at NYU points out to me that U.S. v Alvarez-Machain is a much closer legal basis for seizing Julian Assange than U.S. v Verdugo-Urquidez. He’s absolutely right– the legal doctrine as a whole is called the Ker-Frisbie doctrine, and in short, it holds that defendants may be prosecuted in the U.S. regardless of whether or not they were properly extradited.
