Judge won’t stop NYPD from busing protesters



Published: Tue, October 4, 2011 @ 2:42 p.m.

NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge in New York City has denied a temporary restraining order that would have prevented police from using city buses to transport arrested protesters.

The decision was issued today.

On Monday, the transit union filed a lawsuit. It wants to stop police from making drivers leave their routes to take protesters to holding facilities.

The Transport Workers Union of Greater New York says police ordered bus drivers to go to the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday. They’d made more than 700 arrests there during the Occupy Wall Street demonstration.

The lawsuit had asked for a court order to stop the practice.

The city Law Department has said the NYPD’s actions were proper.
