Since our last update, Scott has succeeded in finding an awesome radical attorney, Michael Deutsch from the People’s Law Office in Chicago. A brief bio is available here: http://www.peopleslawoffice.com/bio/3/.
This is great news, but it also means that we need to raise a $10,000 retainer by next Wednesday. If you’ve been thinking about making a donation to Scott and Carrie’s defense fund at some point, or about putting together a fundraiser, the need is greatest now. Scott’s charge is absurd, but the federal government is quite capable of securing false convictions, and he needs an experienced and committed attorney in order to fight this and win. If we’re not able to raise this initial sum, it will be a serious setback in the progress of Scott’s case and support for both him and Carrie.
Donations can be made two ways: 1. Via the Paypal button at https://davenportgrandjury.wordpress.com 2. By writing a check to “Coldsnap Legal Collective” with “EWOK!” in the memo line, and mailing it to:
EWOK! c/o Coldsnap
PO Box 50514
Minneapolis, MN 55405
(If you mail a check, please email us at email@example.com and let us know to expect it.)
Please donate, and please spread this plea far and wide. If you need help setting up a fundraiser, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your continued support, friends of Scott and Carrie
