"Philadelphia's top prosecutor will fight a court decision that gives Mumia Abu-Jamal a new chance to appeal his conviction in a 1981 police slaying.

District Attorney Larry Krasner, a longtime civil rights lawyer, filed notice Friday that he'll challenge the order that revives the former Black Panther's high-profile case. He declined to comment on the decision.

Abu-Jamal, 64, spent decades as a death-row activist and writer, attracting an international following among death penalty opponents, before his sentence was thrown out over flawed jury instructions. He has been serving life without parole since 2011, and interest in his case has largely quieted."
