Motion seeks dismissal of ‘NATO 3’ terror charges
CHICAGO – Lawyers for three men accused of plotting to attack President Barack Obama’s campaign headquarters with Molotov cocktails during last year’s NATO summit in Chicago filed a motion Friday seeking the dismissal of terrorism charges in the case.
In their filing, the defense team included a 25-page memorandum arguing that the definitions of terrorism in Illinois’ statute are so broad and ill-defined that they open the door to politically motivated charges.
“Basically what we’re saying is those definitions are unconstitutionally vague,” said attorney Michael Deutsch, who represents one of the suspects. “... As a result of that they allow for the arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement of that statute to be used by law enforcement.”
