Sweden is doing its best to keep him behind bars for at least forty-eight additional hours as it decides on how to extradite him for sexual assault charges. Fears are that Assange will go underground in an effort to avoid facing the two women who say they were sexually assaulted by the 39 year old international jet-setter.

News is now breaking that controversial American filmmaker Michael Moore is forking over at least $20,000 to be used for posting bail for Assange. His reasons? ''Transparency is among the few weapons the citizenry has to protect itself from the powerful and corrupt''. Of course, in Moore's eyes, the epitome of corruption is anyone Republican. He then makes the curious argument that had WikiLeaks existed a decade ago, Osama Bin Laden may not have been able to keep the 9/11 terrorist attacks under wraps. The connection's not yet been made as to how Julian Assange could have possibly got a head's up on the intentions of any terrorist.

For now, Sweden is doing its best to have Assange extradited upon his release and it's clear whether or not it happens will come down to the timing. The British judge had already put into place tight restrictions if he were released, including a 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. curfew, a mandatory electronic tag and a physical appearance at a police station each day at 6 p.m. Cash is required and it amounts to around $375,000 in U.S. dollars. It's being reported Moore has put up $20,000. There are also rumors other celebrities have forked over big bucks, but at the time of this writing, they have chosen to remain anonymous. Maybe WikiLeaks can find out who they are.

Moore has also offered up his many servers and domain names for Assange to use as a host for his infamous and troubling website.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
