EFF isn't representing Dmitry Sklyarov.  Joseph Burton is representing
Dmitry Sklyarov.

EFF is working hard on this case, but can't make legal motions on
behalf of Sklyarov.

"Too early" -- an experienced lawyer.

Nobody feels that the government has violated legal standards for a
speedy and public trial yet.  Committed a monstrous injustice, yes.
Made the U.S. look ridiculous and frightening to the rest of the
world, sure.  Violated legal standards for procedural due process in
criminal cases, no.

He's not.

The bail hearing hasn't happened yet.

Sklyarov is being treated, say attorneys, no worse than your typical
Federal prisoner.
