Pack the Courtroom this Friday for OWS

Posted 8 years ago on Feb. 17, 2012, 3:44 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

From the National Lawyers Guild:

Date: Friday, February 17, 2012 Time: 9:30 AM

Place: Manhattan Summons Court, 346 Broadway (entrance on Leonard Street), Jury 7 on the fourth floor

On Friday morning, National Lawyers Guild Mass Defense attorney Jethro Eisenstein will be arguing for the dismissal of charges brought following the clearance of Zuccotti Park on November 15, 2011. In People v. Nunez, Attorney Eisenstein will be representing one of the many protesters who was charged with trespassing on that day. A favorable decision on Eisenstein's argument could benefit everyone facing trespassing charges resulting from the eviction, and could show that Brookfield Properties did not have the authority to have people removed from Zuccotti Park.

Come out, pack the courtroom this Friday, and show your support for the Occupy arrestees!

Public execution of OWS members and pedophiles is the cure to our nations problems.

The hearing for this case was postponed until March 30th. The judge postponed hearing this case because the NYCLU had only filed their support of Mr. Eisenstein's argument the night before. Thus, the judge granted a delay, so that the District Attorney would have time to prepare their response to this motion to dismiss.

Pack the courts on March 30th!

Good luck to you today. Occupy Tucson just defended a motion to dismiss its federal civil rights lawsuit this past Monday. Waiting on a decision. Solidarity!

Progress will not be made working within a criminal system and allowing criminals to arrest and process you.

Our thoughts are with all of those who put their bodies on the line for all of us! Thank you Lawyers Guild of NY for defending.

Australia ,in the State of Queensland in 1971 during the anti apartheid demonstrations,a similar legal entity occurred, the State did not proceed with any charges.The main reason was later divulged that it would have brought media attention to the goings on of the heavy handed tactics used by the State against peaceful protesters.

Great idea...just wish you had put this thread up a day earlier.

The only way you seem to operate is like a pack of wolfs. Can't this movement get civilized? Most of the people I know are busy working and contributing to society in a positive manner not in a negative manner like this movement.

Since there has been no update on this thread, I could probably be correct in assuming the motion to dismiss was denied.

Your link has nothing to do with the original post. Your link has to do with the Brooklyn Bridge incident not Zuccotti Park occupants.

Any word on the result of the motion to dismiss?
