US judge: No probable cause for some RNC arrests
1 hour ago

A federal judge says some arrests of protesters outside the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York lacked probable cause.

Judge Richard Sullivan made the ruling Monday. He says the Constitution does not recognize guilt by association.

In February, a hearing was held on the merits of dozens of lawsuits against New York City for 1,800 arrests.

Sullivan says video shot during protest arrests on Fulton Street makes it clear that marchers were trying to comply with police instructions.

3. This is so awesome, because every one of these cases that wins

creates yet another legal precedent set, supporting the US Constitution's
veracity re: rights of free speech, assembly, etc.
