The 99% - Occupy DC Protester by Chris WielandA judge told Tennessee officials on Monday to stop enforcing new rules that have been used to arrest dozens of Occupy protesters in Nashville.

The decision was a victory for the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee, which sought a temporary restraining order to block a curfew put in place last week, citing the people’s right to peaceful assembly.

U.S. District Judge Aleta Trauger issued the order and scheduled a formal hearing for November 21.
