Updates from the Oakland Courthouse

3:15 p.m. Here are a few points made by John Viola, from the National Lawyers Guild, who was representing at least one of the students charged, forwarded from a student inside the courthouse: The DA has decided not to charge the eight people who were in for felony charges at this point and they will be released later tonight.  We need to continue to follow these cases.  We want the charges dropped and for there to be no academic charges brought against the students.

2:44 p.m. Reports from inside the courthouse are coming in that NO CHARGES WILL BE FILED AT THIS TIME.  EVERYONE SHOULD BE RELEASED TODAY.
