Activists Seek to Subpoena Informant Karen Sullivan -- Antiwar activists are now going on the offensive in court. Mick Kelly and his attorneys announced at a press conference in Minneapolis on Friday that they will make a motion to subpoena "Karen Sullivan," the recently unveiled FBI informant who infiltrated the Anti-War Committee prior to the 2008 RNC. Kelly was shot at close range on the final day of the protests. "By law, we should have been given all information about this ‘Sullivan’ character," said Kelly's attorney Ted Dooley, but so far, information on Sullivan has been absent from the discovery process.
