1 Bybee bio on Fri Apr 24, 2009 4:08 pm



Jay Scott Bybee (born October 27, 1953 in Oakland, California) is a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He has published numerous articles in law journals[1] and taught law school; his primary interests are in constitutional and administrative law.

Bybee is currently the subject of a war crimes investigation in Spain and of a U.S. federal investigation by the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility concerning a legal memorandum he authorized while serving in the Office of Legal Counsel.[2] In this memorandum, Bybee approved of "enhanced interrogation techniques" regarded by the current Justice Department to be torture[3]. The New York Times, in an editorial, has described the memo as "depraved" and called for Bybee's impeachment.[4]
