National Lawyers Guild Calls for Dismissal of Boalt Hall's John Yoo

The National Lawyers Guild has called on Boalt
Hall to dismiss professor of law John Yoo, the
co-author of the infamous Department of Justice
legal memoranda on the United States' use of torture
in interrogating enemy combatants.

The NLG press release of 4/9/2008 states that
"John Yoo should be disbarred and he should not be
retained as a professor of law at one of the country's
premier law schools. John Yoo should be dismissed from
Boalt Hall and tried as a war criminal."
