More Join Chapman U's Debate on John Yoo Torture Memos
Clockwork informed you yesterday about controversial law professor John Yoo being at the center of two upcoming Chapman University School of Law debates, one he is participating in and another that he is not participating in.
When it comes to Saturday's "Forum on National Security, Rule of Law & Torture: The Torture Memos of John Yoo," which the National Lawyers Guild hosts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Kennedy Hall, Rooms 237 A&B, we'd noted the speakers Include Larry Everest, author of Oil, Power & Empire, and Ann Fagan Ginger, president of Meiklejohn Civil Liberties Institute.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations' Los Angeles office informs others have joined the debate. For one, there's CAIR-LA's staff attorney, Ameena Qazi. Also scheduled to be on the panel are Tim Goodrich of Iraq Veterans Against the War and Chapman University law professor Katherine Darmer. Emceeing will be Michael Slate, who hosts KPFK's Tuesday edition of Beneath the Surface. (Email here or call 949-257-8501 for more information.)
Of course, it will be a decidedly different crowd in the Orange campus' Memorial Hall 11 a.m. Tuesday, when Yoo, a visiting professor to Chapman from UC Berkeley's School of Law at Boalt Hall, and John C. Eastman, dean and Donald P. Kennedy Chair in Law at Chapman's School of Law, debate Darmer and fellow Chapman law professor Larry Rosenthal on "Presidential Power and Success in Times of Crisis."
