“Occupy Boise” Still Has Some Time

(KTVB) The Occupy Boise encampment has won a partial reprieve.  Occupy Boise sought an injunction against a new law meant to evict the group from their encampment near the state Capitol. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill ruled this morning that he plans to hold an evidentiary hearing in the near future to allow both sides to present evidence in this case. Winmill told attorneys Friday he would take the weekend to review the motion for a temporary restraining order brought by the protesters and have a ruling Monday morning. However, everything is now on hold at least until Friday, March 2. Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter signed the law that bans camping on state-managed land last week. Protesters had been given until 5 p.m. Monday clear the grounds of the old Ada County Courthouse, where they’ve been camping for nearly four months.  The judge’s decision means they don’t have to pack up their tents, but they can no longer sleep overnight, cook or have campfires on state property. Occupy lawyers say the new law violates their free speech rights. The state contends it is inappropriate to camp out on state land indefinitely. More here
