ICP’s Legal Team Back In Court Appealing Our Lawsuit Against the FBI Over that Stale Ass Gang Label!
So yesterday down in Cleveland our legal team presented our appeal to last year’s lame court decision to throw out our case against the FBI over Juggalos being considered a gang. To be honest, there’s not much news to report—that’s why you didn’t see us mentioning it yesterday on social media or anything—but we CAN report this: Our lawyers presented an EXCELLENT argument for why the Juggalo family deserves its day in court to legally challenge the Department of Justice’s unfair—and harmful—labelling. So while our case supposedly got “thrown out” last year, we vowed to appeal that decision and we now have. What happens next? Surprise! More waiting. One of our lawyers told us that the appeals court’s written decision would be presented in 1 -2 months. As we’ve seen over the course of the last few years that we’ve been fighting this, the court system loves to take its sweet ass time. But as soon as we get some concrete information about the next step in our quest to clear our family name, we’ll be sure and let you know. In the meantime…fuck it! Next month is our annual Gathering and what do we say to those who don’t like it? All together now: “FUUUUUUUUCK OOOOOOFF, BIIIIIIIIIITCH!”
Bit of a mix of staleness and dopeness in Gathering of the Juggalos news. The fresh-as-fuck metalcore band Emmure has been forced to withdraw from the Gathering due to lead singer Frankie Palmeri rupturing his vocal cords a few months back. Taking Emmure’s spot on the Big Top Stage will be those stoned fun-lovin’ hooligans known as Potluck, who have performed at the Juggalo family reunion several times in the past and always turn it tha fuck out! We wish Frankie a quick recovery and hope to see Emmure at next year’s Gathering. For real.
In related news, the full program and timeline for the 2015 Gathering is now available for download at juggalogathering.com. Now you can see detailed descriptions of every event going down at this year’s Juggalo family reunion, which runs from July 22-25 in Thornville, Ohio. Only a month away so get those tickets and passes now!
