I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
John Yoo, Bush’s Torture Lawyer, Given Immunity:
John Yoo, the UC Berkeley law professor who penned legal memos that provided cover for President George W. Bush’s torture program, can’t be sued by one of the victims of that program, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Jose Padilla, an American citizen arrested in 2002 and declared an “enemy combatant,” may not hold professor John Yoo liable for “gross physical and psychological abuse” that Padilla said he suffered during more than three years of military detention, according to the Los Angeles Times.
