Justice Department Allows CIA Torture Lawsuit to Proceed in Stunning Reversal

In a stunning reversal, the Justice Department is allowing a lawsuit by alleged victim of the CIA’s torture program to proceed, the New York Magazine reports. 

The lawsuit was filed by the ACLU on behalf of three former CIA prisoners. The suit alleges human right violations by two psychologists and former Air Force trainers whose company received a contract to help the CIA run the program.

The Justice Department previously blocked similar cases by invoking the state-secrets privilege.

The ACLU may have been given a hand by the Senate’s investigation of the torture program, which was released in December. The probe found that torture produced very little useful intelligence.
