George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley is taking on the case of Ali Al-Timimi, the Virginia cleric convicted in April of inciting followers to wage war against the United States. Turley is replacing Timimi’s trial lawyer Edward MacMahon Jr., and will serve as lead attorney for Timimi’s appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. Turley says he plans to have law students assist him with the appeal. “The Al-Timimi case raises extremely important questions of constitutional law and individual rights,” Turley says. In July, Judge Leonie Brinkema of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia sentenced Timimi to life in prison. MacMahon says he needed to step aside to prepare for the January 2006 sentencing trial of client Zacarias Moussaoui.
