Lasuren Regan, ED, Civil Liberties Defense Center

Jeff Hogg, a Eugene citizen who has been imprisoned for 6 months for
failing to cooperate with a federal grand jury allegedly
investigating the Green Scare was ordered released from jail today!
Last week the remaining 4 Oregon Green Scare defendants admitted
responsibility for their crimes which resolved the Oregon case. We
believe at this time that that resolution has opened the jail cell
doors for Jeff; and his family and friends anxiously await his return
from Grants Pass Jail tonite!!!
Thank you all for your continued support for Jeff!
Peace-
lauren

Source of info about Jeff's release was Jeff's lawyer Paul Loney, who fought with the prosecutor to obtain Jeff's release. When Paul threatened to file more motions, the prosecutors blinked and let Jeff out. Then Paul then notified Jeff's support. Paul of course is thrilled Jeff is or soon will be free and seeks no attention. Personally, I hope people are able to call Paul, write him, and otherwise let him know how much they appreciate Paul Loney's hard work.

I agree with Stu Sugarman about letting Paul Loney know how thankful we are for attornies like himself and Lauren Regan!

Paul and Lauren have helped many people for years who might not have had a quality defense without them.
Stu Sugarman has done the same.

Comrades I salute you!

How can we contact Paul? 16.Nov.2006 08:55

Does he read this site?

I think Portland's activist lawyers ROCK! Which says a lot, considering what I usually think about lawyers. Stu and Paul are two of my very, very favorite lawyers of all time. I do not know either personally (I think I met Stu once), but their work is very well known and much appreciated throughout the activist community. We know you've got our backs, guys!

So how can I get words of appreciation to Paul? Does he read the site here?

This is great news. Now he can get back to nursing school. If anyone has a little cash laying around, I bet Jeff could use it to buy some books.
