On April 6, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Mumia Abu-Jamal’s appeal for a new guilt-phase trial. The Supreme Court has not yet decided whether to consider the Philadelphia DA’s separate appeal, which is attempting to execute Abu-Jamal WITHOUT a new sentencing hearing.

In response to today’s rejection, Abu-Jamal’s lead attorney Robert R. Bryan will be filing a “petition for re-hearing” at the U.S. Supreme Court.
