Mumia's Long Ordeal Enters New Phase
Will he finally get a new trial?
Mumia's attorneys, Robert R. Bryan and Judith L. Ritter, will file the opening brief in Mumia Abu-Jamal v. Martin Horn, Pennsylvania Director of Corrections on July 20th in the U. S. Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. In a June 9th press conference in San Franciscoimc_video.gif Bryan explained the three key issues. Other speakers included imc_video.gif Tom Lacey.

The State of Pennsylvania has recently filed an appeal seeking to reinstate the order to execute Mumia. Governor Ed Rendell has said that if the appeal is upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, he will sign the third warrant for Mumia's execution. Barring the unlikely intervention of the U.S. Supreme Court, Mumia will have 90 days to live.

Two Pennsylvania Congresspeople are introducing legislation to demand that the Parisian suburb of Saint Denis reverse its decision to name a major street after Mumia. The new street, leading to the largest sports stadium in Europe, the Nelson Mandela Stadium, has been formally named Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal. Mumia's legal team, headed by Robert R. Bryan, has expressed the view that Mumia's final appeal on the three central issues before the court will be successful and that the Pennsylvania's effort to execute Mumia will fail. However, Bryan warns that nothing is certain in these matters and especially in these times. Read more
