Portland protesters 'occupy' courtrooms to prove unjust arrests

Dozens of protesters arrested during Occupy Portland marches are filling Oregon courtrooms, vowing to stick out a tough fight over their First Amendment rights, which they say were violated when the protesters were charged with various misdemeanors. Prosecutors have called for the dismissal of the more serious charges in order to clear the court calendar, but some of the protesters have asked a judge not to allow the dismissal. They want a jury trial to prove they were well within their rights to protest peacefully.
