Dec. 1 Court Hearing

Occupy Boston is pleased that Judge Frances McIntyre has decided to continue the temporary restraining order against the City of Boston and Boston Police Department preventing the removal of Occupy Boston’s tent city from Dewey Square until she fully weigh the facts of the case to rule on whether to grant a Preliminary Injunction. Judge McIntyre indicated that a decision would be forthcoming on or before December 15. Occupy Boston is eager to hear the Judge’s ruling and hope that the Suffolk Superior Court acknowledges that 24-hour protests are an expression of freedom of speech and therefore protected by the First Amendment. We would like to thank our allies at the National Lawyers Guild, American Civil Liberties Union and Todd & Weld LLP.
