Amazing Week in Snohomish County Court…

The Delta 5 trial concluded today, with a little something to bemoan (a guilty verdict for misdemeanor trespass and the fact that they couldn’t use the necessity defense in the end) and much to celebrate (an acquittal on the “obstructing a train” charge, and the thoughtful words of both the judge and the jurors. The wheels of justice are turning, if too slowly.)

Great stories here and here.

“Quite frankly they (the defendants) are tireless advocates whom we need in this society to prevent the kind of catastrophic effects that we see coming and our politicians are ineffectually addressing,” the judge said. Um, yeah….
