Attendance at the Jeremy Hammond Court Conference

Attendance at the Jeremy Hammond court conference today in New York City about recusal of Judge Loretta Preska (recusal denied).

Hammond entered and departed from the left door escorted by the guards from the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) via a skyway link. Judge Preska entered and departed from the right door to chambers. Prosecution attorneys arrived via public corridor escorted by two guards (maybe due to New York federal courts serving as principal US forum for terrorist prosecution).
