Judge Rules in Favor of Angola 3's Albert Woodfox

Judge Brady Rules in Albert's Favor!

Great news!

The hearing on Tuesday went so well that Brady has already ruled in
Albert's favor, granting Albert an evidentiary hearing on the issue
of discrimination in the selection of the Grand Jury foreperson (read
the 2 page ruling

The presumption that discrimination occurred is now technically in
our favor and this hearing will be the State's chance to rebut
it. Timelines are still being worked out but most likely the hearing
will be scheduled by summer.

This is a small but important step towards again overturning Albert's
unjust conviction. A huge congrats to the legal team for the months
of unexpected legal work it took them to get us back to this stage of
the game, and lots of gratitude to all the supporters who made the
trip to Baton Rouge to fill the hearing courtroom. Thanks to a
brilliantly argued case, the court is better poised to again give
Albert yet another chance at freedom than it was when this process began.
