The National Lawyers Guild says it has obtained a court order that allows Occupy Wall St. protesters to return with tents to a New York City park.

The guild says the injunction prevents the city from enforcing park rules on Occupy Wall Street protesters.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the city knew about the court order but has not seen it. He says the city plans to go court immediately.

Zuccotti Park was cleared overnight so that crews could clean it. Bloomberg says that was done "to reduce the risk of confrontation."

He says the city had planned to allow the protesters back in the park after it was cleaned. Under the city's plans, protesters would not be allowed to use tents, sleeping bags, or tarps and would have to follow all park rules.

    Finally the courts made a ruling that makes sense. They can occupy but not camp out. now maybe they will get the hint that we are all tired of them.

    May they all go and camp-out and urinate in the judges yard.

    It is one thing to peacefully demonstrate -- it is another to cut the fence of private property and occupy the lot! Don't the "fools" understand that what they are doing is hurting their image with the most of the people of the US? Then "some of us" are upset when the police go in and force them to leave. Think of how you would feel if you were the owner of the property!!!!!1 Maybe we should be told where the "money" is coming from to finance all of there "occupy" operations! Seems too well organized to be not be organized and paid for by someone or some organization!
