Guiora Co-Authors NY Times Op-Ed Advocating Drone Court

Amos_Guiora_cagfyxOn April 24, 2015, Professor Amos Guiora published a New York Times op-ed, “Judicial Review of Planned Drone Attacks Would Save Lives.” The editorial, co-written with Jeffrey S. Brand, dean emeritus and professor of the University of San Francisco School of Law, argues that the establishment of a drone court would result in fewer civilian deaths.

A drone court, the authors propose, “would be composed of rotating federal District Court and Court of Appeals judges charged with weighing evidence presented by government officials in an adversarial setting.”  This would result in “a cadre of judges trained in the difficult task of determining whether sufficient cause exists to launch a drone strike that could kill innocent victims as well as the intended targets.”
