'Occupy Tucson' Lawsuit Against City Enters Mediation Phase

In a ruling last week, U.S. District Judge David Bury granted the City's motion for summary judgment, dismissing certain claims filed by the plaintiffs relating to the City's park permit requirements. The case dates back several years and relates to the "occupation" of Veinte de Agosto Park in Downtown Tucson, which occupiers called "Safe Park."
