Cops Can Arrest Transit Workers on Protest

MANHATTAN (CN) - A New York transit union cannot block cops from arresting city bus drivers who refuse to drive Occupy Wall Street protesters to prison, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.
     The union's lawyer, Arthur Z. Schwartz with Advocates for Justice, told Courthouse News Service that he was "disappointed" by the ruling, but added that U.S. District Judge Paul Engelmayer "made it clear" that the union can move forward with a case for a permanent injunction preventing the police from recruiting public transportation workers to drive prison buses.
