SAN DIEGO (AP) - Occupy San Diego protesters have lost a court bid to block a law that prevents them from setting up tents at the demonstration site.
The San Diego Union-Tribune says the judge on Thursday rejected a request to bar enforcement of a city ordinance the occupiers call overly broad and vague.
The law makes it illegal to place any "vegetation or object" on public space. Demonstrators who've occupied the Civic Center Plaza since October have feuded with police for weeks about what they can bring in. Their lawyers argued that the law would bar even a cup of coffee and that police had used the measure selectively against demonstrators.
But the judge ruled the law gives protesters other channels to get across their message.
