Over the past day, [e]veryone has been reporting about the arrest last month of Elliot Madison for twittering about police movements to protesters during the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh, PA.

The reason this is being reported on now is because on last Thursday, the FBI also raided Mr. Madison’s home in Queens, NY, followed on Friday by Mr. Madison’s filing of a motion in the Eastern District of New York federal court in Brooklyn for the return of his seized property.

In reviewing all the stories, we saw lots of quotes from Mr. Madison’s legal filings and from the Pennsylvania state criminal complaint against him, but no links to the legal papers themselves. As a resource to journalists and interested readers, we are posting Mr. Madison’s motion and his lawyer’s supporting declaration; attached to the declaration are copies of the search warrant, an inventory of the seized items, and the original criminal complaint.
