DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Occupy Dallas protestors will have one more night at their downtown camp before they learn if they must pull up stakes and move out.

The City of Dallas doesn’t want the protestors using City Hall facilities and littering the lawn with posters.

The city says it’s allowing the group to stay in place until a federal judge hears the case tomorrow morning.

Occupy Dallas formed over a month ago and is set up behind City Hall.

According to the group’s lawyer, Jonathan Winocour, the judge has questions about federal jurisdiction in the case.  Winocour says he has asked Judge Jane Boyle to kick the case to state court, where Occupy Dallas originally filed suit.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 9:30 Tuesday morning.
