CONTENT/TRIGGER warning… state sanctioned torture and violence.
[While its uncomfortable for *US* to see this photo, and it brings all sorts of feelings imagine what this felt like for Eric. This image is sensitive and while it is public record Eric has given consent for it to be shared. It is a very vulnerable image of him and his body. We ask if folks use this image elsewhere to please link back to the fundraiser/update page (as well as Eric’s blog and Facebook and twitter support page) for context and so folks have the ability to read the exhibits and motions in conjunction so that it is not just gratuitous violence.]
Eric’s legal team has finally been able to get his legal fundraiser up! We ask the community to please share far and wide!
Check under campaign updates for recent filings
The fundraiser page will also be a place that his legal team can provide case filing updates. These filings are also available for viewing and public record for those who setup a pacer account. Setting up an account requires a credit card and you will be charged for viewing any document over $15 a quarter. So they are public record but …as much as requiring someone to setup a *paid* account can be considered “public record”. Because the way this system works excludes those from accessing this information without disposable funds or bank accounts, and in an attempt for total transparency, his legal team will be posting these court documents on the fundraiser page for all to see.
The first filings have been posted on the fundraiser page under campaign updates. Filed today was a motion to continue and various supporting documents.
If you want to read the email between Eric and his partner that started this ALL head over and take a peek.
Eric has previously reported being restrained and uncommunicative for around 7 hours after he was assaulted.

Be it a letter-writing event with a hat to pass for donations or an all out show with a pinata to bust open it helps Eric immensely with access to counsel that is working SO hard for him.
