Legal Working Group Begins Action to Protect Camp’s Constitutional Rights

This following resolution is summarized from the minutes of the November 3rd, 2011 General Assembly:

The Legal Working Group reached consensus with the General Assembly on November 3rd, 2011 to allow the National Lawyers’ Guild and the American Civil Liberties Union to begin preparing legal action ensuring the future of the Occupy Boston camp. The proposed lawsuit would request an injunction protecting the 1A constitutional rights of members of the Occupy Boston community and preventing the camp’s removal from Dewey Square. A representative of the NLG clarified that the suit will not be filed at this time but will be made ready and maintained in case of possible developments for which the injunction would be appropriate.
