Public Citizen to represent jailed ex-CAIR spokesman
by Josh Gerstein
A jailed former spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations has picked up new legal support from the litigation arm of the public-interest group Public Citizen.
Randall Royer, who got a 20-year-sentence in 2004 after pleading guilty to helping four men join up with the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, has enlisted the Public Citizen Litigation Group in a pair of legal challenges he's pursuing.
One case seeks to use the Privacy Act to correct records that led to his designation as a "terrorist inmate." Another suit claims the Bureau of Prisons was required by law to publish a formal regulation to govern the process of listing prisoners as terrorists.
