Occupy Boston to Fight in Court

(NECN: Jennifer Eagan, Boston) - Occupy Boston protesters are looking for their day in court to ask a judge to keep authorities from removing them from their encampment in Boston's financial district.

A judge granted them a temporary restraining order against the city on Nov. 16, but Occupy Boston aims to ask a judge to grant an injunction.

City officials argue Occupy Boston's encampment may pose a safety or public health issue, and that police should have the right to move against the protesters for this reason.

Occupy Boston is modeled after the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York, which has ignited other protests around the country, where demonstrators protest against economic inequality, corporate greed and money in politics.
