About 75 Occupy Wall Street protestors held sleep protests outside banks early Friday morning, citing a New York District Court ruling from 2000.

In that decision the judge wrote, “the First Amendment of the United States Constitution does not allow the city to prevent an orderly political protest from using public sleeping as a means of symbolic expression.”

More case law from Occupy Wall Street’s legalassistant.
