|On Tuesday May 29th, Albert Woodfox of the Angola 3 began a three day hearing before the US District Court in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, regarding discrimination in the selection of the grand jury foreman in Albert Woodfox's 1998 retrial.
Prof. Bell has written an article, to be published in the upcoming Spring issue of the Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly, entitled "Perception Profiling & Prolonged Solitary Confinement Viewed Through the Lens of the Angola 3 Case: When Prison Officials Become Judges, Judges Become Visually Challenged and Justice Become Legally Blind."
On April 17, 2012 Amnesty International delivered a 67,000 signature petition to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's office, demanding Albert Woodfox and Herman Wallace's immediate release from solitary confinement. Governor Jindal refused to meet with the delegation. A new AI petition has been launched in response.
