WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday accepted appeals from two men detained for years at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The surprise move gives new hope to suspected war criminals held on U.S. soil by the U.S. military.

Oral arguments will be held in the fall.

The order was the last major business by the justices until they return from summer recess in three months.
