Mock Luke Cage Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus

Join us at San Diego Comic Con on July 20, 2017 at 800pm in Room 23ABC for Sweet Christmas! A Mock Trial to Prove Luke Cage is Innocent.

The mock hearing is based upon the ending of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix. Luke was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals in New York City to be returned to Georgia for breaking out of the fictional Seagate Prison. We extrapolated what exculpatory evidence could be in the folder found at Pop’s Barbershop from the original Power Man comics from the 1970s: Diamondback had Luke framed for heroin possession.

Christine Peek, Esq., from McManis Faulkner in San Jose, California, appearing pro hac vice with the fictional Hogarth, Chao and Benowitz, LLP for our mock hearing, prepared the following petition to prove Luke Cage’s actual innocence:


What will we learn from the testimony of Nicholas Manolis? How will U.S. Magistrate Judge Mitch Dembin rule on the petition? Join us on July 20 at 800pm to find out at Sweet Christmas! A Mock Trial to Prove Luke Cage is Innocent.
