A New York Supreme Court judge has upheld the NYC’s right to enforce rules to bar the Occupy Wall Street protesters from camping overnight at Zuccotti Park.

Michael D. Stallman said, “The court is mindful of the movements’ First Amendment rights of freedom of speech and peaceable assembly.” But he added, quoting from another case, “Even protected speech is not equally permissible in all places and at all times.”
