In May 2011 Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal issued a “confession of error” on behalf of his office, acknowledging that it had failed in its response to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Katyal stated that the Solicitor General’s office had defended the internment policies, and in doing so had concealed information that undermined a key rationale for internment: that many Japanese-Americans posed a security threat. Professor Katyal will speak about the importance of, and the process for, confessions of error by the Solicitor General, within the framework of the Hirabayashi case.
