Mumia Abu-Jamal faces US Supreme Court, as supporters mobilize globally
On Friday, Dec. 19, 2008, death-row journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal filed his appeal to the US Supreme Court, asking it to consider his case for a new guilt-phase trial. One month before, the Philadelphia DA filed its separate appeal to the court asking to have Abu-Jamal executed without a new sentencing-phase trial. Both are appealing the <a href="http://abu-jamal-news.com/article?name=tct">March 27, 2008 rulings by the US Third Circuit Court</a>. <p> At this critical stage in Abu-Jamal’s case, supporters organized a <a href="http://freemumia.com/international.html">week of global solidarity actions</a> that began on December 6, the day of the main protest in Philadelphia.

text Mumia legal update: The Philly DA still wants to execute him! Lead attorney Robert R. Bryan 2008-10-20 6:40 AM
Below is the new legal update from Mumia Abu-Jamal’s lead attorney Robert R. Bryan, concerning Mumia’s appeal to the US Supreme Court. He is appealing the US Third Circuit Court decision denying a new guilt-phase trial or a preliminary hearing that could have led to a new guilt phase trial. The Supreme Court granted Bryan’s request for a 60-day extension, so he will have to submit his petition by Dec. 19, 2008. Significantly, Bryan announces that the Philadelphia DA is appealing the Third Circuit Court’s affirmation of US District Court Judge William Yohn’s 2001 decision, which ‘overturned’ the death penalty and stated that if the DA wants to re-impose the death sentence, they must hold a new penalty-phase jury trial where new evidence of Mumia’s innocence can be presented, BUT, the jury can only decide between a sentence of life without chance of parole or execution. Therefore, if the US Supreme Court rules for the DA and overturns this ruling, Mumia can then be executed without having a new penalty-phase jury trial. The DA will submit their petition by Nov. 19, 2008. (text/plain + 1 comment)
