Big News!

Yesterday, it appears that the judge who is presiding over the lawsuit against four members of Time's Up has ruled in the bicycle activists favorites...

Here is a small blurb that had been airing on NY1 today:

City Denied Request For Injunction To Stop Critical Mass Bike Rides
February 15, 2006

The Critical Mass bike riders won another battle in their war with the city, as a State Supreme Court judge on Wednesday denied the city's request for an injunction that would have stopped the monthly demonstration in its tracks.

Lawyers for Critical Mass say they've won a victory for riders and people's civil rights.

However, the city's Law Department disagrees and will appeal the ruling, saying: “We do not believe that public safety, the law or common sense have been well served by the court's denial of our request for a preliminary injunction."
Well now...

There will be a press conference on this landmark decision towards freedom of expression, Today at the Time's Up bike space...
49 East Houston St. February 16th at 11:30am...please bring video cameras or audio recording devises.

Information on this is still coming in and later today a lot of legal details should be explained on the judges 30 page ruling about critical mass in NYC.
