You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Dlott also awarded substantial damages against the CPD over alleged hostile treatment of a transgendered police sgt. In other words, of the five judges that were available, the protestors got the best possible pick, senior Judge Sandra Beckwith is married to a retired CPD Lt and has a reputation of not putting up with any crap from miscreants. Nor does Sr Judge Herman Weber. Senior Judge Spiegel is a liberal but follows the law scrupulously. THe youngest Judge in Cincinnati is Mike Barrett-part of the family that owns the Western Southern LIfe insurance company and runs the Barrett Cancer center. He's fairly easy going but the protestors' act would quickly wear thin with him
Why can't you people side with law enforcement? What the hell kind of untouchables do you think you are?
Now, can you please tell me, what do these OWS'ers want? And if they have no leaders but are instead a spontaneous uprising of disaffected citizens, then who decided to exclude the reporter from the meeting? Who refused the city's settlement offer?
For that matter, who sought a TRO against the city on their behalf?
filed on behalf of "Occupy cincinnati" to stop the CPD from actually enforcing a reasonable law that was on the books
the attorney went to capital university which doesn't mean much-it is not rated very highly but its the night school option in Columbus and night schools often draw highly talented people who have to work while going to law school. a search of Miller shows he has been a member of the Ohio bar for 9 years and does general stuff- criminal,divorce, PI, family law
the local news just announced that a "major ruling has been issued by the judge-I will try to find out what happened
I suspect if this goes on the City will take an emergency appeal to the 6th Circuit which tends to be less friendly to such stuff than the most liberal of 5 judges on the Cincinnati federal bench
