      Mehserle's Attorney Accuses Community Activists of Spreading "Disinformation"
      Johannes Mehserle's Racist Change of Venue Motion Cites Indybay and Community Activists

      On September 11th, Johannes Mehserle's attorney Michael Rains filed his long-expected motion for a change of venue. Mehserle and his defense team appear to be hoping for the murder trial to be moved out of Alameda County as their last best chance for him to avoid a conviction for the murder of Oscar Grant III on January 1st, 2009. In the motion, Rains accuses activist groups and Indybay of spreading "disinformation" about the case and unfairly amplifying political pressure to prosecute.
