Judge Jay Bybee, one of the torture memo authors, is sitting this week in the Las Vegas 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Bush rewarded him for "legalizing" torture by giving him a lifetime appointment on this court. Can you go and protest his presence.
Court starts at 9:00 every day starting tomorrow through Thursday (he's not sitting on Friday), at Lloyd D. George United States Courthouse, 333 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Courtroom 7C, Las Vegas.
If you need to know more about Bybee, ask me.
Here are some signs to print off and bring -
We demonstrated last Thursday in almost all the 9th Circuit locations around the West, and will again on 6/25. Let's organize a BIG one in Vegas!
And please let me know how it goes this week. If you can get inside the courtroom wearing t-shirts that say Bye-bye Bybee, or Impeach Bybee, or Bybee the Torture Judge, that would be ideal. Standing outside is also great. Or both!
