The Honorable A. Wallace Tashima examines the U.S. government's War on Terror detention policies and procedures and concludes that their ad hoc and shifting nature have eroded both the perception and the reality of the U.S. commitment to the Rule of Law.
Honorable A. Wallace Tashima was appointed to the United States District Court for the Central District of California (at Los Angeles) by President Carter in 1980 where he served as U.S. District Judge for over 15 years. He was appointed by President Clinton as a U.S. Circuit Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on January 4, 1996. He assumed senior status on July 1, 2004. Prior to his appointment to the bench he was a partner in the Litigation Department of the law firm of Morrison & Foerster. Judge Tashima has lectured widely in the United States and abroad, primarily in Asia, on a variety of civil justice and civil reform topics.
