A3 Newsletter: Cautious Optimism as A3 Supporters Pack the Courtroom for Albert Woodfox

MEDIA COVERAGE:  The Advocate  II  Times-Picayune  II  Robert King on KPFK Radio

Judge Brady Gives One Week for Final Briefs in Albert's Fight for Bail --A Release Decision is Expected Soon Thereafter

As expected, arguments began by exploring whether the federal or state courts have jurisdiction of Albert's release and ended with a discussion about what bail for Albert may look like.

Though the Court has given both sides one additional week to sum up, we expect he should rule soon thereafter.  If he doesn't release Albert, the legal team is prepared to move his compelling case for bail to the state court.

Though the arguments were mostly procedural, the courtroom was overflowing with loving, dedicated supporters who stuck out the procedural delays to stand up for Albert and his long overdue freedom.  Thanks to all of you who continue to show up and tune in as he takes his final steps toward release.

We will update you as soon as we hear more.
