Occupy Courtroom 1A: Lawyers finished all of the presentation of evidence at around 3:30pm 10-30-12, and now the Judges are waiting for the State and the Defense Attorneys to file our memoranda of law and argument related to the cases. Our memoranda of law and argument are due by Tuesday, November 13. They will then review those memoranda, consider the evidence, and then make a ruling at the time they see fit. Occupy Gainesville had a lovely lunch Courthouse picnic style during lunch break from court today! Thank you all that came out and to the 3 wonderful lawyers for their time into the cases.
The Motions to Dismiss for the cases of 30 Occupy Gainesville members will be called up for hearing before The Honorable Judges Thomas M. Jaworski, David P. Krieder and Walter M. Green for en banc consideration.
The Occupy Gainesville defendants are moving the Judges to dismiss, with prejudice, the "Trespass in City Park After Hours" cases brought against them by the Gainesville Police Department, the City of Gainesville, and the State of Florida on the grounds that their arrests and prosecution violate their constitutional rights to freedom of core political speech, freedom of peaceful assembly, due process and equal protection of the laws of the United States and the State of Florida.
Please come to Courtroom 1A to show your solidarity with dignity, decorum and respect for the Occupy Gainesville members that stood up for everyone's rights!
