Niketown 7 are Free!

Charges dropped in the case of seven Loyola Students Against Sweatshops charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
Charges have been dropped in the case of seven Loyola Students Against Sweatshops charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass during a protest at Niketown Chicago. On the morning of August 27, Nike sent a representative to the courthouse where the jury trial was slated to begin for the seven Loyola students arrested in January. At that time, the prosecuting attorney revealed that Nike was not
going to proceed with the case, and all were free to go. The lawyer for the seven, Melinda Power, speculated that the prosecution realized that the case against the seven was very weak, and Nike knew it would only be in for more bad publicity if the trial went forward.
