John Yoo, Child Testicle Crusher, Ordered to Testify in Court

John Yoo, who has written legal memo stating it is legal for the president crush a child's testicles, has been ordered to testify in court regarding torture and the Jose Padilla case.

From Andrew Sullivan (via the NY Times)...

Encouraging news - and just as encouraging, the NYT's linguistic shift:

A federal judge has ruled that John Yoo, a former Bush administration lawyer who wrote crucial memorandums justifying harsh interrogation techniques, will have to answer in court to accusations that his work led to a prisoner’s being tortured and deprived of his constitutional rights.
