Abstract: 

On August 17, 2107, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced a settlement in a lawsuit against the two psychologists who designed and implemented the CIA’s program to render detainees helpless.  The settlement occurred after the plaintiffs successfully overcame efforts by the psychologists to dismiss the case and a jury trial was scheduled to start on September 5, 2017.
