In a story from the Idaho Statesman, Occupy Boise lawyer Bryan Walker says the state's call to Judge B. Lynn Winmill to reconsider an injunction is unfounded.

Winmill ruled in February that although the protesters couldn't continue to camp overnight on the Capitol Mall grounds, their tents could stay since they are a symbol of protest.

The attorney general's office has asked Winmill to have the tents temporarily removed to perform maintenance on the grounds from damage caused by the protesters. The AG's office says that by not moving temporarily to allow for the maintenance that the encampment is obstructing the state.

Along with temporarily moving, the state says it needs to close part of the grounds for construction work on the old courthouse.
