Return to Drug War News: Don't Miss Archive

On Wednesday, January 3, 2007 Barry Bachrach, attorney for Leonard Peltier, filed an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

This appeal concerns the unconstitutional application of Section 235( b)(3) of the SRA by the Parole Commission.

This enactment made substantial changes by stripping the Parole Commission of any discretion and by establishing a method of determinate sentencing.
