Capsule biographies of the participants:

Randall B. Hamud, the U.S.-born son of an Arab immigrant and a graduate of UCLA Law School (1970), agreed to represent three young Arab Muslim immigrants from the San Diego area who were arrested after the September 11th attacks. In so doing, he has become a vocal critic of what he considers the Bush Administration's attack on fundamental Constitutional rights. He has appeared on the Fox News Channel, CNN, CBS and debated Alan Dershowitz on Court TV. He authored a personal account, "Diary of a 'Terrorist's' Lawyer," which appeared in California Lawyer magazine (April, 2002).

Cy Husain is a born and raised U.S. citizen of Albanian Muslim descent and a graduate student in Theoretical Physics at Cal State L.A. After the September 11th attacks, he lost his job as a technician when FBI agents came to interview him at work. Later, armed men claiming to be with the Joint Terrorism Task Force searched his house without a warrant. Husain is also a liberal Democratic Party activist and has spoken out about the human rights of Muslim people.

Matthew McLaughlin has been a Special Agent with the Los Angeles office of the FBI for ten years. Prior to that, he worked for the Naval Investigative Service as a white collar crime investigator and polygraph examiner, and before that as a radio news anchor/reporter. As an FBI agent, he has experience in undercover assignments, gang and kidnaping investigations, and for the past two years has been the spokesperson / media coordinator for the FBI's Office of Public Affairs in Los Angeles. A Cal State Fullerton graduate with a B.A. in Communications, he is married with children.

Jeremy B. Rosen is a graduate of Cornell (B.A., 1993) and Duke (J.D. and L.L.M., 1997). He has been at associate with the Horvitz and Levy firm since 2001 and has handled appeals from Internet defamation cases, as well as tort and contract cases. He is an Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine Law School, a member of the Federalist Society, and has written articles critiquing the Independent Counsel Act and excessive jury awards (Los Angeles Daily Journal, vol. 114, No. 168).
