Law360 (April 10, 2018, 7:40 PM EDT) -- Chuck Close and other artists urged the Ninth Circuit during oral arguments Tuesday to revive their putative class actions seeking art sale royalties from Christie's, Sotheby's and eBay, saying a California law mandating royalty payments to artists isn't preempted by the federal ...

And John Yoo and Jay Bybee's memo from the Justice Department in 2002 notwithstanding, waterboarding was still illegal in 2002. So you know, to me, we are conceding our leadership position on international human rights. And we have decided as a matter of policy that whatever is expedient is OK, ...

Morell himself reluctantly acknowledged that he knowingly allowed CIA intelligence findings to be misrepresented by the Bush administration and used as a primary justification for the Iraq War.

In case you missed it on Friday afternoon — and it's easy to miss things on Friday afternoons in July (which is why they're a great time for staff reshuffles and divorce announcements) — the Ninth Circuit, sitting en banc, issued a flurry of opinions in United States v. Martinez-Lopez, a complex sentencing ...
But a much lengthier rebuke to Trump came from the pen of one of America's most conservative judges, Jay Bybee. You may remember Bybee as an author of the torture memos, which he signed while serving in George W. Bush's Office of Legal Counsel. These memos authorized the brutal torture of ...
In one of the more nauseating passages, Jay Bybee, then an assistant attorney general and now a federal judge, wrote admiringly about a contraption for waterboarding that would lurch a prisoner upright if he stopped breathing while water was poured over his face.
