The National Lawyers Guild plans to file a legal ethics complaint against UC Berkeley law professor John Yoo, who wrote the notorious “Torture Memos” while working for the Bush Justice Department. According to the Los Angeles Times, the complaint would be filed with the Pennsylvania Bar Association, where Yoo obtained his law license. The lawyer’s guild has already filed an ethics complaint with the California bar against William Haynes II, former Defense Department counsel in the Bush regime. Haynes, who with Yoo’s assistance, helped authorize torture by military interrogators at Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib prisons, is now a corporate attorney for Chevron in San Ramon.
