Bradley Manning Supporter Sues Government Officials
Dave Rice, April 6, 2012
Bradley Manning Support Network co-founder David House has been cleared by a federal judge to continue with a lawsuit he’s filed against former San Diego schools superintendent and current Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin, along with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton.
At issue is a claim by House of surveillance and routine harassment by federal officials since he helped form a legal defense fund for Manning, the soldier suspected of dumping 700,000 confidential military files through the whistleblower site WikiLeaks. Though arrested in May of 2010, Manning has yet to stand trial.
House’s specific charges include allegations that he has been detained every time he’s crossed the U.S. border since September 2010, and has been “grilled about his political beliefs and work for the Bradley Manning Support Network,” according to a report by Courthouse News Service.
