Judge rules against Occupy OKC group

OKLAHOMA CITY - A federal judge has denied a request from a group of protestors to allow them to continue their demonstration.

Occupy OKC protestors asked for a preliminary injunction that would have allowed them to continue camping overnights in the park.

Monday's late ruling means city officials can enforce an overnight curfew though police have no immediate plan to do so.

Protesters have stayed in the park since Oct. 11 as part of a demonstration over the disparity in wages between the working class and the wealthy.
