Judge Grants Occupy Boston Restraining Order Against Zuccotti-Style Police Sweep | Members of the Occupy Boston movement have been granted a temporary restraining order against removal by the City of Boston from Dewey Square Park. At a court hearing requested by Occupy Boston activists, the judge ordered the city and Occupy Boston into mediation before a Dec. 1 hearing. If city wants to take police action before then, it needs a court order to do so. City attorneys had told the judge the city did not want to agree to give Occupy Boston notice or engage in mediation before police take action, convincing the judge the restraining order was needed. Reporting at the hearing were Kevin Gosztola, Jess Bidgood, John Atwater, and Ben Parker.
