NYC Contempt Hearing Delayed on Appeal

September 27 court proceedings against the the City of New York were delayed by a state appeals court judge Tuesday, giving the city a November 23rd date for an appeals hearing.

The September 27 hearing concerned accusations that City had held Republican National Convention protesters for more than fifty hours without charge.

Norman Siegel, a civil liberties lawyer who represents the protesters, told the New York Times in Wednesday editions that he was disappointed with the decision, but was confident the city would still be held in contempt.
