Subject: Update on Court hearing of December 7, 2006

On December 7, 2006, Michael Kuzma, argued before a three-judge panel of the
United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, for full disclosure
of all FBI documents maintained by its Buffalo field office.  The Government
withheld documents from this file on the grounds that release of this
material would, among other things, hamper the "war on transnational
terrorism" and reveal the identities of confidential sources.

The argument was spirited.  Judge Straub actively questioned both Leonard's
and the Government attorney, as supporters looked on.  The Court reserved
decision, which will not be handed down until sometime after the New Year.
A reporter from Associated Press covered the hearing.  That afternoon, WBAI
reporter, Andrea Sears, interviewed Barry A. Bachrach and Michael Kuzma
regarding Leonard's case.  A lively rally of supporters gathered at Foley
Square before and after the hearing.  It was yet another great day as we
come one step closer to liberating Leonard from federal prison.
