3: September 13: Trial Call Starts for Scott

Scott's trial could start as early as September 13th! The federal district court has a trial call system, which means that the actual start date of the trial can vary. We're planning to be in Davenport and ready to pack the courtroom starting on September 13, so we would love it if you could join us. Interested in coming out? Email us at scottandcarrie(A)riseup.net so we can help you get plugged in to the support work and figure out the logistics for your stay in beautiful Davenport.

Also, we're still in need of legal defense funds! Our fundraising continues to progress, but we have a long ways to go to meet our goals. You can donate online by visiting http://davenportgrandjury.wordpress.com or you can send a check or money order made out to Coldsnap Legal Collective with "EWOK!" in the memo line to:
