Federal Gov't Subpoenas College for Info on Peace Activists

Democracy Now! | Federal Gov't Subpoenas College for Info on Peace Activists. Some may have been following this story.

The lastest news is that the subpoenas have been quashed:

All of the subpoenas have now been withdrawn and the gag order has been lifted.  I can now fully comment.  Although we have now won this battle thanks to the bravery of the activists who were served with the subpoenas, many of whom have been my clients, and to the National Lawyers Guild which came forward to protect the Drake chapter and publicize the outrageous actions of the federal government when I was under a gag order.  Now we will be looking into possible civil causes of action and calling for a congressional investigation into this and any other investigations of peaceful protest and student organizations so that we can make sure that
this does not happen again.
Thank you all for your support.  It's been a really crazy week.
