He may have been standing up for what he believes in, but now, he's going to have to do it again in a court of law!
Noah Wyle and 73 others were arrested late in April for protesting Congress' decision to cut Medicaid with the disability-advocacy group ADAPT in the rotunda of the Cannon House Office Building in D.C., and now, they all must be appear in court next Tuesday!
One such member, Marsha Katz, whose husband is in a wheelchair, says:
"I'm shocked and angry. This is the first time in more than 20 years that the court wouldn't allow an attorney to represent us and wouldn't entertain a motion to postpone. Are they doing this to dissuade us from exercising our First Amendment rights?"
Wow! Sounds like they're really trying to make an example of these people!
You guys did a very brave thing, holding your ground and forcing such a serious issue to get the attention it deserves!
Don't let this keep you down!
You've got our support, guys! And the support of countless others!
