Have you heard of Josh Wolf?
This post is a lil different from the news I normally share, but it's an important story. A freelance videographer, and blogger named Josh Wolf, is currently being detained because he's refusing to turn over unpublished footage he shot during a 2005 SF protest to the Federal Government.
SPJ President Christine Tatum writes:
Today, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals declined to hear Wolf's appeal en banc (meaning that the court will let stand the ruling handed down by a panel of the appellate court's judges).
Not only did the 9th Circuit deny Josh's petition, it also ruled that he can have no bail and that "no further filings shall be accepted in this case."
