Early yesterday afternoon police offcers were in Lincoln Park distributing plastic covered notices to campers in the Park advising them to remove structures and belongings and “to remain out of the Park” between 10:00 pm and 6:30 pm., unless a lawsuit is filed by them by 12/19. The notice was signed by Mark H. Rees, city manager and dated December 15th.

John Branson, pro bono attorney for OccupyMaine was out of the office yesterday. However, according to a press release from city spokesperson Nicole Clegg, the city has received assurances that the lawsuit will be filed prior to the December 19th deadline.

Meanwhile, mhn.com has learned there are four plaintiffs in the case against the city; two men and two women.
