Occupy Boise Asked to Leave for Short Time

BOISE, Idaho (AP) – “Occupy Boise” protesters must temporarily vacate the old Ada County Courthouse by Wednesday to allow state officials to assess damage to the grass where their tents have been erected since last November. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill made the decision Friday, modifying an order he gave in February that allowed tents to stay on the state-owned site. At the time, the judge concluded a law signed by Gov. Otter to evict them violated their constitutionally-protected, free-speech rights. But with his latest decision, Winmill is giving the Idaho Department of Administration up to eight weeks to assess damage to the property and begin a rehabilitation plan. Come mid-August, Winmill says Occupy Boise can return, but its adherents must allow unobstructed access for workers to water and mow.
