Dear Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal,
Good News. Today the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit denied the
DOC's motion to "stay" Mariani's order that the DOC provide Mumia the
Hep-C treatment pending appeal. They had filed a motion saying that
until the appeal is decided, they need not comply. The appeals court
has now rejected that argument.
This does not mean that the DOC will comply and treat Mumia ASAP. We
don't know what they will try next. There has been a motion pending in
front of Mariani for almost two months to find the DOC in contempt for
failing to comply with his order to treat Mumia. Mumia's lawyers--Bob
Boyle and Bret Grote--are consulting to figure out the next step.
Meanwhile this is a indeed a great victory, but Mumia has not been
treated yet. Protest, pressure and publicity is needed to get Mumia and
other prisoners Hep C treatment.
