Google's John Mueller said in response, "I don't know about "link juice" but I do know how PageRank is handled." "There's still confusion on 302/301 from the olden days; 302s are fine," he added.

In fact, last month, John Mueller said 302 redirects pass PageRank.

So, do not believe everything you read out there, including what he read here ;-).
