05/14/12 – Scott Horton – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 14, 2012 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses his article “Yoo, Latif, and the Rise of Secret Justice;” the Ninth Circuit Court’s legally indefensible ruling that John Yoo is immune to Jose Padilla’s torture lawsuit because, at the time, torture was a confused legal issue; “torture memo” co-author Jay Bybee’s convenient new gig as a Ninth Circuit Court judge; why Italian prosecutors wish John Yoo would resume vacationing in Italy; the DC Circuit Court’s steadfast belief in secret and self-contradicting government evidence against ten-year Guantanamo inmate Adnan Latif; and how Republican judges are making radical changes in the rule of law to get their buddies off the hook.
