RIP Len Weinglass

I almost missed this obit:
Leonard Weinglass, a crusading lawyer who championed radical and liberal causes and clients in some of the most controversial trials of the 1960s and '70s, including the Chicago 7 and Pentagon Papers cases, died Wednesday in New York City. He was 77.
I worked with Len as a minor player on the defense team for Amy Carter and Abbie Hoffman in the CIA on Trial case back in 87. Very nice man and brilliant defense lawyer. Very sad. Great loss to civil rights activism. RIP.
