Judge rejects Cleveland protest limits at Republican convention

"A U.S. judge on Thursday struck down the city of Cleveland's plan for placing limits on protests outside the Republican National Convention, saying the "event zone" is too large and security regulations too strict, lawyers who sued the city said.

With the convention 25 days away, U.S. District Judge James Gwin issued a preliminary injunction rejecting the city's plan to establish a large security zone in central Cleveland, said Christine Link, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Ohio.

Attorneys for the city and ACLU were at work in the judge's chambers, possibly to set a deadline for designing a new event zone with fewer restrictions, Link said………..

……… The plaintiffs in the Cleveland lawsuit are Citizens for Trump, a Texas-based group that supports the businessman's campaign; Organize Ohio, a liberal activist group; and Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless, a charitable organization……….

The question is……….

Who will be in attendance other than the Donald Trump Entourage?
Most all of the GOP big names either have a scheduling conflicts; plan to have the flu; or have voiced for their well-being……….

Also a few GOP House members are contacting delegates who are pledged to Trump but would prefer not voting foe him……….are being encouraged to just stay home.

Now that would be interesting to see how many delegates don’t show up and therefore their “vote cannot be counted………..maybe enough to put Trump below 1237 making for an open convention……….
This has been such a weird and never before political run for President I would not be surprised by whatever happens………
