Court proceedings concerning citations issued to Occupy Murfreesboro protesters were pushed back again Tuesday after a city attorney argued more time was needed to review a motion to dismiss all of the cases.

Murfreesboro City Judge Ewing Sellers agreed to push back court hearings for all 13 protesters who were issued multiple citations in December by Murfreesboro Police Department officers during a nearly monthlong encampment at Civic Plaza.
Sellers ruled a preliminary hearing on the motion to dismiss would be held March 8 at 10 a.m. However, he said none of the protesters or police officers involved in the case would be required to attend that particular hearing.
He said further court dates would be set for the protesters if the motion to dismiss were denied.
