NYC Supreme Court Judge Orders Protestor Release

September 2nd, 2004

According to the Associated Press State Supreme Court Justice John Cataldo ordered the immediate release of 470 protestors being held illegally and fined the city $1,000 for every protester held past a 5 p.m. deadline.

“These people have already been the victims of a process,” state Supreme Court Justice John Cataldo told the city’s top lawyer. “I can no longer accept your statement that you are trying to comply.”

Or in the words of one judge

I have been here since 5:00 [2:30 hours] and only 20 people have been released. What is taking so long?!
