An article in the Cincinnati Enquirer this morning reports a settlement in the charges against the Occupy Cincinnati protestors.
"The city and Occupy Cincinnati protesters have reached a legal settlement nullifying hundreds of criminal charges against protesters and ending a federal lawsuit against the city."
"Cincinnati’s settlement – expected to be filed in court Monday morning – appears to be one of the first in the nation resolving both a federal civil rights lawsuit against a city and local criminal charges against individuals of spin-off organizations of the international Occupy Wall Street movement, according to some political science and legal experts."

I was not aware that there was a federal civil rights lawsuit involved. Has that happened in other cities? I am not an expert so don't have any insightful analysis to add, just wanted to note the news.
