- CURRENT STATUS: The US Parole Board denied Dr. Shakur release for the eighth time in May 2018. Counsel for Dr. Shakur filed a lawsuit against the US Parole Commission and the Bureau of Prisons. After being diagnosed with life-threatening bone cancer and being denied compassionate release, this case was expedited.
