A three-woman, three-man Cowlitz County District Court jury was still deliberating at press time Friday night in the trial of ILWU International President Robert McEllrath on charges of obstructing/delaying a train Sept. 7 at the Port of Longview.

Although the charge is a misdemeanor, dockworkers came from all over the world to show solidarity at McEllrath’s trial, which began Thursday. Longshore workers hung a banner outside the Hall of Justice reading: "Fighting for good jobs should not be a crime," and several of them wore shirts with the same slogan.
