NYC Parks Department Sets New Rules, Artists Sue To Block Enforcement

From Robert Lederman, the president of the street artist group, A.R.T.I.S.T.:

"June 18, 2010 - The Parks Department has finally published the revised Park rules for artists in the City Record. There are no more hearings. It is now the law in parks. Enforcement will begin in 30 days.
[....]
A lawsuit was filed today which seeks a temporary injunction to prevent the rules from being enforced in 30 days. The initial plaintiffs are myself and Jack Nesbitt. Other artists are also planning to file their own separate lawsuits."
