Judge Denies Occupy Dallas Order Against City

DALLAS (AP) – A federal judge has refused to grant an order sought by Occupy Dallas demonstrators to prevent the city from closing their campsite.

Protesters failed to get a temporary restraining order Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Jane Boyle earlier expressed concern that federal courts did not have jurisdiction.

The city last week alleged protesters had violated an Oct. 17 agreement to allow the campsite near Dallas City Hall. The city noted reports of an alleged sexual assault of a child at the site, the removal of a baby over possible endangerment and trespassing arrests.

A Nov. 12 deadline to comply has been extended.

Occupy Dallas officials said protesters are abiding by the deal.

Attorneys for the city and for Occupy Dallas did not immediately return messages Tuesday from The Associated Press.

    Occupy Dallas is starting to adopt an anti-corruption platform that should garner much more respect. An Occupy Dallas member’s page http://owwc.gu.ma , supporting a Dallas business owner who lost millions of dollars to a corrupt officials seems to illustrate this adaption.
