Professors found unfit to teach, fancy themselves outside the law

Failing to reconcile personal prejudices with established law [ http://glenngreenwald.blogspot.com/2005/12/supreme-court-already-rejected-bush.html ], former law school dean Jesse Choper and recognized war criminal John Yoo find themselves reduced to attacking the Supreme Court:

"MEGA EVENT: CHOPER & YOO on the Supreme Court"
[ http://farnsworth.law.berkeley.edu/MasterCalendar/EventDetails.aspx?data=hHr80o3M7J7WMhPwN6O6mcutVd8%2fUBZDrJm42picdNcRCybD3wb2Ng%3d%3d ]

In an attempt to squelch controversy, school administrators have elected to employ a seldom-used mechanism to suppress alternate views, requiring attendees to display their “papers”, or university IDs -- so much for oft-proclaimed integration of the University with the community at large.

Anti-torture advocates will challenge this pretext for exclusion by testing policing at event doors, expressing solidarity with actual torture victims by wearing the prison garb of Guantanamo.

Meetup 12:30 pm outside Room 110, Boalt Hall, UC Berkeley campus on Thursday September 9. Demonstrate your right to speak out against school administration promotion of state torture policies.
