ACLU Lawyer Signs Court Order That Allows #OWS Protesters to Stay in Park
Occupy Wall Street protesters claim they hava a court order that allows them to stay in Zuccotti Park.
The AP reported:
The National Lawyers Guild says it has obtained a court that allows Occupy Wall St. protesters to return with tents to a New York City park.
The guild says the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city knew about the court order but has not seen it. He says the city plans to go court immediately.
Zuccotti Park was cleared overnight so that crews could clean it. Bloomberg says that was done “to reduce the risk of confrontation.”
Judge Lucy Billings, who signed the court order, is an ACLU veteran.
