Forum Post: Is the NYC ban on occupying being appealed?

Does anyone know if there is an appeal process taking place of either of the following:

Judge Stallman's ruling that camping in publicly owned (or leased, etc.) parks or other spaces is not protected by the first amendment?

Judge Billings being replaced by Judge Stallman, and the manner in which it was done.

And finally, is there any lawsuit against the city for having ignored Judge Billings' 11/15 6:30 am restraining order?

I doubt it. The lawyers are always hesitant to put their necks out there too much.

What about the NYCGA Legal Group or the "hidden" leadership? They had the money to do it. And I'm sure there were lawyers who would have (did?) handled it for free.

Of course, other Occupies may have started their own court cases.

Generally speaking, when people offer their services for free its usually half assed. I tough to get anything going when the structure is so horizontal one can hardly see it.

These people seem to think they were/are the OWS leaders, David Graeber et al. http://assange.rt.com/occupy-episode-seven/

What legal decisions did they make or push?
