Fajitagate Appeal to the 9th Circuit

February 13, 2008

Guild attorney Dennis Cunningham is set to argue the Fajitagate appeal before the Ninth Circuit in a special session at Boalt Hall, on Febraury 13.

The session begins at 9:30. Torture policy architect, Jay Bybee, a Ninth Circuit judge is on the panel. Dennis filed a motion to recuse him on the grounds that as a proponent of torture, he cannot sit impartially in judgment of a case about police brutality. Guild members encouraged to attend what will surely be an interesting session.
