This panel features Dror Ladin of the ACLU National Security Project, part of the team from Salim v. Mitchell, who won a settlement for accountability of two psychologists involved in the CIA torture program. This case marks the first of its kind in CIA torture litigation as the judge rejected attempts to dismiss. Ladin will discuss what this landmark settlement means for future litigation and advocacy against torture, particularly under the current administration.
