1)Legal Update


As of today, November 14, 2006 Josh has been imprisoned for 84 days. The prison is

currently refusing to grant him interviews with the media over the phone.


There are currently no motions pending because we are waiting to hear back on a decision

from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to grant an en-banc hearing (a hearing before the

full panel of judges on the Ninth Circuit). We are expecting a decision in the next few

days so keep checking Josh's blog and wiki for updates.




2) Josh Wins Society of Professional Journalists' Journalist of the Year Award




"On Thursday, November 9th, Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional

Journalists held their annual banquet. Of the many honors that were bestowed on people,

arguably the most prestigious, Journalist of the Year, went to imprisoned video

documentarian, Josh Wolf, along with other grand jury subpoena resisters, San Francisco

Chronicle sports writers, Lance Williams and Mark Fainaru-Wada.


Wolf's mother, teacher Liz Wolf-Spada, accepted the award on behalf of her son. Wolf, who

had been imprisoned, released and then re-imprisoned, has served a total of 82 days in a

federal penitentiary for refusing to turn over his unedited video footage of a July 2005

San Francisco protest. From: Indybay.org
