Good News New Year: Lynne Stewart Out of Jail

lynne_stewart_0Lynne Stewart, an attorney who defended political prisoners throughout her career, was granted  compassionate release on New Years Eve. Stewart, 74, has late-stage breast cancer and was serving a ten-year sentence for allegedly delivering a client’s communication to a group branded as terrorists. For more information on Stewart and her case, see The Center for Constitutional Rights,  CNN and Democracy Now. The latter link shows Stewart’s arrival at LaGuardia airport, where she was greeted by a bevy of family and friends — it’s a jubilant scene guaranteed to lift your spirits.
