From: Robert R. Bryan, lead counsel for Mumia Abu-Jamal. Subject: Petition for Rehearing and Rehearing En Banc, United States
Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, filed on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal, death row, Pennsylvania United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Philadelphia.

 On June 27, 2008, I submitted on behalf of my client, Mumia Abu-Jamal, a Petition for Rehearing and Rehearing En Banc in the U.S.
Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Yesterday it was deemed "filed" by the court following rulings on related motions. The focus of the Petition is the issue of racism in jury selection. If unsuccessful, we will proceed to the United States Supreme Court.

Below are two news articles concerning the Petition. Today's Philadelphia Inquirer piece gives an overview of this newest
development, while that by Dave Lindorff is a brilliant analysis of these case developments and its politics. A copy of the actual
Petition for Rehearing and Rehearing En Banc, which is before the federal court, is attached.

Donations for Mumia's Legal Defense in the U.S. To make tax deductible donations to the legal defense, please make checks payable
to the National Lawyers Guild Foundation (indicate "Mumia" on the bottom left). They should be mailed to:

Committee To Save Mumia Abu-Jamal
P.O. Box 2012
New York, NY 10159-2012

Conclusion Even though the federal court granted a new jury trial on the question of the death penalty, we want a complete reversal of the conviction. I will not rest until my client is free.

Yours very truly,

Robert R. Bryan
