OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – There’s an update on a group of protesters that were arrested on the Farnam Street bridge back in July.
According to our partners at the Omaha World-Herald, a judge has thrown out cases against 25 protesters who Omaha police said were illegally blocking traffic.
Douglas County Judge Marcena Hendrix issued the order Wednesday saying Omaha’s ordinance prohibiting the obstruction of a highway or street is "overly broad" in that it clearly regulates protected speech.
Interim Omaha City Attorney Matt Kuhse told the World-Herald that he will mull appealing the order next week.
