AETA Charges Dismissed

This is very good news from July 13, reported in Action for Animals Austin.
A U.S. district court judge today dismissed federal charges against the AETA 4, four activists charges with acts of terrorism under the Animal Enterprise Terrorist Act. In his ruling the judge stated that federal prosecutors did not show how any of the supposed activities these activists were engaged in amounted to crimes. In fact, he said their activities were protected free speech.
Here is a good analysis that appeared in Huffington Post.
