San Francisco, CA September 13, 2006 -- Ed Rosenthal and Richard
Watts appeared before Judge Charles Breyer in U.S. District Court in
a status conference to determine who will represent them in their
upcoming trial for medical cannabis felonies, but perhaps the most
significant development was that a grand jury will not reconvene in
their case.

NOTE: More accurately, the grand jury cancelled a hearing that had
been scheduled for tomorrow in Oakland. They could still reconvene
to hear more evidence at a future date. It remains to be seen
whether the US Attorney decides to file a superseding indictment. If
not, Ed's trial date has been set for Oct 23rd, but this could well
be delayed by other motions. Ed and Rick are seeking to have their
cases severed - DG).
