This is all extremly tenative, especially considering that the ruling was made ten minutes ago, but according to SCOTUS blog:

The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Bush did not have authority to set up the war crimes tribunals at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and found the "military commissions" illegal under both military justice law and the Geneva convention.
Obviously, more to come on this.
