- 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. We need your support and donations as this case works its way through the court potentially impacting not only Dr. Shakur's fate but that of many aging federal prisoners!
