See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

The disbarring and imprisonment of Lynne Stewart, one of the nation’s most courageous civil rights lawyers, is a window into the collapse of our judiciary.
– 2014/02/09

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

"Stewart—who has stood up to state power for more than three decades in order to give a voice to those whom authorities seek to crush, who has spent her life defending the poor and the marginalized, who wept in court when one of her clients was barred from presenting a credible defense—is everything a lawyer should be in an open society. But we no longer live in an open society. The persecution of Stewart is the persecution of us all."
