Leonard Peltier Wins Procedural Point in his Lawsuit Against Prison for Discriminatory Treatment of his Art

Ballot Access News

On July 16, Leonard Peltier won a procedural ruling in his lawsuit against prison authorities, who sponsored an art exhibit and initially included his work, but then removed it because of his perceived beliefs. Peltier was the Peace & Freedom Party presidential nominee in 2004. Here is the 18-page ruling in Peltier v Sacks, w.d. Washington, 3:17cv-5209. Thanks to the Institute for Free Speech for this news.

The ruling is by U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Leighton, a Bush Jr. appointee.
