Every win counts, as each one sets a precedent that other lawyers can use.

No doubt. Small victorious can create momentum for greater justice, especially if we can publicize it.

They were just being a bit overenthusiastic in their dereliction of duty.

Good news - the right to protest is not dead everywhere.

Did you read the judges comment?

"One of the only Occupy-related trials in the country to be argued before a jury, today also marked the first civil disobedience Free Speech case in recent Philadelphia memory. After the trial, the judge remarked, “This is the most affable group of defendants I’ve ever encountered.”

Check this out for an example of a nasty judge:

Scalia is named Troll.

OMG!!!

Scalia's the guy that's been posting all that trash around here!!!

He would get a kick out of it from what I understand - and people wonder what is wrong with the justice system. SHEESH.

This thread proves it works once in a while anyway.

Now if that judge would ask Wells Fargo to come in and testify as to the conditions that were being protested, we might start getting somewhere.

Yep - judicial questioning of fraud and collusion would be a nice thing to see. Not to mention illegal foreclosures.

I did not catch that - just the favorable finding. Thx.
