Editor’s Note: This is a report just received from Ralph Hutchison of the Oak Ridge Environmental Peace Alliance on his morning’s developments in Knoxville. We will know more before the day’s end.
There was a court hearing this morning in knoxville regarding jackie hudson’s release. jackie was unable to attend, but her lawyer, brad henry, requested her release and the judge granted it providing she accepts the conditions. at this point, her lawyer, the US marshal, and the probation officer are on their way to the hospital. after jackie signs the papers and they return to the judge, she will be officially “released” and her lawyer will be allowed to call joe and sue and tell them which hospital she is in. it’s not clear if she is in any condition to leave the hospital, but at least we’ll be able to sit with her.
