Protests Against Boalt Professor Yoo's Role in Torture Memos Continue at Berkeley

Story here.

UPDATE:  Armen Adzhemyan, a 2L at Boalt, writes:

The protests are not really continuing since they have nothing to do with the protests about a
year and a half ago when the memos were first released.  Those were by graduating 3Ls.  This is by an organization determined to disrupt campuses across the US.  To that end, the day after they set up shop in front of the law school they interrupted my Con Law class with Prof. Yoo.

I'm certain most of my classmates are very respectful of his right to teach here, while
disagreeing with his politics.  Similarly, those of us in the class were pissed off as hell that
our time was taken from us.  It's unfortunate that the Daily Cal is such a crappy paper that it
did not cover the class interruption and the citation of the protesters [by the police].
