Robert Bryan, Mumia Abu Jamal's Lead Attorney, On The Recent Ruling In His Case

On April 1, 2008, I interviewed Robert Bryan, Mumia's lead attorney about recent developments in his case, including the long awaited ruling by the federal Third Circuit Court Of Appeals released on March 27, 2008.

On March 27, a federal appeals court refused to overturn the conviction of imprisoned journalist and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal and rejected his call for a new trial. However, the long-awaited ruling said Abu-Jamal, who has been on death row for twenty-six years, deserves a new sentencing hearing because of flawed jury instructions. If he is re-sentenced, he will face either death or life in prison without parole.

Read excellent analysis of the ruling by Linn Washington Jr. here
Linn Washington Jr. is a journalist and university professor in Philadelphia who has written extensively about the contentious case since Abu- Jamal’s arrest in December 1981.
