Guiora’s ‘Drone Court’ Proposal Featured in The Salt Lake Tribune

Professor Amos Guiora’s proposal to establish a “drone court’ was featured in The Salt Lake Tribune on November 28, 2014.

According to the story, “Today, when U.S. intelligence agencies believe they know the location of a terrorist in Pakistan and a few other countries, they are largely free to deploy a weapon that’s become the symbol of war on terror: an aerial drone.

The drone drops a bomb or fires a missile that executes the suspect.

University of Utah law professor Amos Guiora is pushing for another step before the U.S. government or military could decide to kill a terror suspect with a drone.

In proposal to be published in 2015, Guiora and a colleague are pushing for what they call a ‘drone court.’

The court would be part of the judiciary branch and hear arguments for why the United States should target a suspect with a drone strike. A lawyer from the government would make an argument to a judge.”
