LFB MEMBER Paul Trummel, aged 68, was, when the Freelance went to press, in solitary confinement in what sounds like the punishment wing of a jail in Seattle. Paul (pictured) is being held for contempt of court. He had refused to take down a website which a housing association says is defamatory and he says is journalistic free speech.
