Last week, attorneys for grand jury refusers Matthew Duran and Katherine Olejnik—who have been in prison since September and solitary confinement for the past two months—filed motions with Judge Richard A. Jones, asking him to release their clients. (Their reasoning is in the original post.)

Judge Jones has asked the government to respond to the motions by Wednesday of this week and will have a hearing this Friday at 10 am at the federal courthouse, 700 Stewart St.

The hearing should be open to the public.
