Occupy Movement

A federal court in Akron is set to consider scheduling matters for five men charged with plotting to bomb a northeast Ohio bridge.

The court scheduled the Thursday status conference and said it also would consider whether the case should be tried in Akron or Cleveland. The highway bridge named as the target of the alleged bomb plot sits in between those cities, near the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. 

The suspects are described by the government as self-proclaimed anarchists. They have pleaded not guilty.

A newspaper reports an agreement has been reached between the city of Cincinnati and Occupy protesters charged last year after police say they trespassed or refused to leave a public park at closing.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the agreement expected to be filed Monday says a portion of the downtown Piatt Park will be a 24-hour public space beginning next week.  Cincinnati City Solicitor John Curp told the newspaper Sunday the agreement also prohibits encampments and tents.

It also ends a federal lawsuit against the city.
