AG Report: John Yoo May Lose Law License

An internal probe by the US Justice Department concludes that UC Berkeley law school professor John Yoo should not be prosecuted for war crimes, but might face legal disciplinary hearings that could result in disbarment, according to the Los Angeles Times. The 5-year-old probe’s conclusions were expected. Reports about the probe, which began under the Bush administration, have circulated for months that it would find Yoo had acted unethically when he authorized torture but not illegally. The report, however, has not been finalized or approved by Attorney General Eric Holder.
