Washtenaw County Coalition Against
Apartheid (WCCAA) members earlier
this week decided they will not press for
an emergency appeal on a recent
judgment by Circuit Court Judge Ross
Campbell stating that the University
may move its meetings to another
location in order to bar demonstrators
should there be a breach of the peace.

chances of (winning) an emergency
appeal," Liu added. He said the appeal

Among those intrigued by the ruling are
senators, lobbyists, and several mem-
bers of the state democratic caucus. He

also "definitely wants to be involved in
this - they want to give us legal and
political support."
The WCCAA's attorney, Thomas
O'Brien, filed the claim of appeal in the
State Court of Appeals in Lansing last
Friday. The case will eventually come
before three judges in that court.
