Settlement Reached Over Long Haul Raid

The law enforcement agencies that raided the Long Haul in 2008 have come to a settlement agreement in the lawsuit filed against them by the anarchist library and community center, as well as the prisoner support group East Bay Prisoner Support (EBPS). According to the settlement, the agencies have agreed to delete the computer data seized in the raid and pay $100,000 in damages and attorney’s fees, according to a press release today by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. In addition, the UC Berkeley Police Department acknowledged that the Long Haul, located at 3124 Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley, qualified for federal protections from police searches, even though it had denied this during the lawsuit.
