Convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal has been granted a hearing in federal court over the quality and extent of medical care he has received in prison for his Hepatitis C and associated infirmities.

Abu Jamal’s attorneys claim that their client has not received the proper care needed to treat his medical condition.

Abu Jamal had served 30 years on Death Row for the December 9, 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

Abu Jamal’s death sentence was subsequently vacated and he was sentenced to life in prison, where he remains today. 

U.S. District Judge Robert Mariani will hear arguments in the case on December, 18 in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
