Prof. Scott Horton Quoted in Washington Independent Story on Criminal Liability of Officials Who Approved Use of Torture

Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law Scott Horton was quoted in The Washington Independent in the article “Gitmo prisoners pose thorny problem for Obama. Does U.S. need an alternative court system?”

“I think Obama intends to act really quickly, to get prosecutions that result in the convictions of high-profile people,” said Scott Horton, an international lawyer and visiting professor at Hofstra Law School. “If he were to go for a national-security court, it would have to be done by legislation. That’s at least a year to set up a new commission.”
