Court hearing on Occupy Boise focuses on lawn maintenance issues

A hearing yesterday in federal court on the Occupy Boise case focused on maintenance of the lawn at the Idaho Capitol Annex where the group's tent vigil has taken place, and how much the vigil should be disrupted to accommodate that lawn maintenance; U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill said he’ll issue a written decision by today, the Idaho Statesman reports. He also asked attorneys for both sides to participate in a conference next week to discuss the state’s new rules governing use of state property. You can read the Statesman's full article here by reporter Katy Moeller, which also notes that the larger issue, whether the state law banning camping on state property is constitutional, will be decided later.
