MAYOR OF ATLANTA AND CHIEF OF POLICE SUBPEONAED TO TESTIFY BY OCCUPY ATLANTA LEGAL TEAM FOR OCCUPY TRIAL BEGINNING MONDAY, DECEMBER 17th

DECEMBER 14, 2012 ATLANTA, GEORGIA – Yesterday, Attorneys for Occupy Atlanta, served subpoenas on Atlanta Mayor, Kasim Reed, Atlanta Chief of Police, George Turner, and 3 other high level officials in the police department and city hall to testify in the Occupy Atlanta trial set to begin Monday, December 17th at the Atlanta Municipal Court. The Occupy Atlanta protestors were arrested on October 25th for remaining in Woodruff Park after Mayor Reed rescinded an executive order allowing them to remain in the park after closing hours.

Over a dozen volunteer attorneys for Occupy Atlanta have been filing and arguing motions for more than a year in preparation for Monday's scheduled trial before the Honorable Crystal Gaines. The Mayor, Chief of Police, and other officials have been subpoenaed to testify so they can be questioned about the basis for evicting the Occupy protestors from the park. The trial is expected to last a week with over 80 defendants and 50 officers scheduled to testify.
