It’s Official: John Yoo Is Let Off the Hook

In a long-awaited report released this afternoon, the Obama Justice Department concluded that UC Berkeley law professor John Yoo exercised “poor judgment” when he authorized torture and warrantless wiretapping while working for the Bush administration. The newly released report was redrafted after it previously concluded that Yoo had engaged in “professional misconduct” and that he should be referred to the Pennsylvania bar, where he got his law license, for disciplinary proceedings. If the previous conclusion had been allowed to stand, then Yoo may have lost his law license, and ultimately, his tenured professorship at Berkeley.
