Judge orders New York to allow protesters, tents, in park
Source: CNN

New York (CNN) -- A New York judge issued an order Tuesday allowing Occupy Wall Street protesters to return to Zuccotti Park, just hours after scores of riot police ordered them out and tore down their tents.

The order from New York Supreme Court Judge Lucy Billings allows protesters to bring tents and other equipment back into the privately owned park where the now-global Occupy movement began.

Police, however, did not immediately let them in, after city officials expressed health and safety concerns about the park just as the winter months roll in.

3. I think this is old.
From the injunction granted this morning.

The OWSers reacted to it, but then it was clarified that this was an old post.

5. Outdated. The new judge is about to rulle.
The story you quote is from earlier, before that judge was removed from the case.
