Occupy Cedar Rapids lawsuit dropped

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Members of the Occupy Cedar Rapids group have dropped a lawsuit they filed against the city.

In November, Cedar Rapids officials gave protestors a deadline to move off of city property in the Time Check neighborhood because the group did not file the paperwork for a permit. Instead, the group filed suit to block the city from removing tents and fire pits. The city later moved the case to federal court.

On Friday, the Occupy group has dropped the lawsuit after a neighbor gave the group permission to move into a nearby vacant lot.
