BREAKING: Case Dismissed Against Brandon Raub

Thursday afternoon several dozen supporters of Marine Veteran Brandon Raub gathered around the Hopewell Circuit Court for a hearing that was scheduled at 11:30. This was an emergency hearing that included several appeals and motions. Tony Troy, whom represented Brandon Raub which was not present because of his UNLAWFUL detainment in a Salem County, Virginia Hospital conducted an excellent defense in which he was successful.

In a statement released by The Rutherford Institute, an institution dedicated to CHAMPIONING individuals’ rights said this in a statement:

“This is a great victory for the First Amendment and the rule of law,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. “Brandon Raub was arrested with no warning, targeted for doing nothing more than speaking out against the government, detained against his will, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys. These are the kinds of things that take place in totalitarian societies. Today, at least, Judge Allan Sharrett proved that justice can still prevail in America.” To read more of their write up visit here.

Judge Sharrett went on to say Raub suffered a “deprivation of his liberty” by being held without a clear claim.
