Mr Justice Lindblom is due to hand down judgement on the tent city that has been camped in St Paul’s Cathedral churchyard for three months today at 2pm.
A hearing was held before Christmas after the City of London Corporation brought legal action claiming that the Occupy London Stock Exchange camp was unsanitary and posed a health and social risk.
John Cooper QC, representing the Occupy LSX camp, has claimed that activists’ impact has been exaggerated. However, the judge at the hearing was told that the City of London Corporation had tried to “negotiate a peaceful end with a defined and agreed date,” and that “that offer was summarily rejected and no counter offer provided.”
The announcement today comes hot on the heels of news yesterday that protestors had been evicted from the protest camp in Parliament Square, with three people arrested and around 30 tents removed fom the site.
