With a federal judge's ruling that the new Idaho law aimed at getting rid of the Occupy Boise movement is specified for camping, not maintaining a 24-hour presence, members are now searching for a plan to make it happen, according to the Idaho Statesman.

According to the judge's ruling on Monday, because of the way the law was written, members can keep their "tent city" on the Capitol Mall grounds, but aren't allowed to sleep or cook on the grounds because that would constitute camping.

So the Occupy Boise movment is now looking into strategies that will allow it to maintain a presence at the mall, but not violate the judge's order.
