Demonstrators will assemble at federal courthouses nationwide tomorrow for a one-day protest that coincides with the second anniversary of the Supreme Court's Citizens United v. FEC decision, but the event's New York City plans are on hold as they wait for a permit. The local Occupy the Courts rally was denied their request to congregate in Manhattan, but has been granted an expedited hearing for its appeal in ... Manhattan Federal Court. Oh, bureaucracy.
