Last month Elliot Madison was arrested for twittering about police movements to protesters during the G-8 Summit in Pittsburgh, PA.
Thursday, the FBI also raided Mr. Madison’s home in Queens, NY, followed on Friday by Mr. Madison’s filing of a motion in the Eastern District of New York federal court in Brooklyn for the return of his seized property.
As a resource to journalists and interested readers, we are posting Mr. Madison’s motion and his lawyer’s supporting declaration; attached to the declaration are copies of the search warrant, an inventory of the seized items, and the original criminal complaint.
Mr Madison is being charge with possession of a criminal device, i.e., his cell phone.
