Judge Refuses To Dismiss Lawsuit To Allow Peaceful Protest In Central Park

Judge Jacqueline Silberman of the State Supreme Court of New York denied the City’s request late yesterday to dismiss the lawsuit brought by United for Peace and Justice. UFPJ is seeking a permit for a rally in Central Park on August 29th, on the eve of the Republican National Convention.

Judge Silberman has now directed the City to produce papers showing why it is in opposition to the request by UFPJ. Those papers must be submitted prior to a hearing scheduled in Judge Silberman’s court room Tuesday, August 24th at 9:30am in Room 228 at 60 Center Street.

The New York Civil Liberties Union joins with the Center for Constitutional Rights in representing UFPJ in this lawsuit.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
