A permit to camp on the Courthouse lawn from Occupy Missoula has been denied by County officials. I spoke with Missoula County Chief Administrative Officer Dale Bickell about the denial of Occupy Missoula's application. That interview is attached.

Mr. Bickell said the group's application to camp out at the Courthouse has been denied, and that he could not forsee any future applications being granted. However, he did emphasize the fact that other forms of demonstration and protest were welcome on the Courthouse lawn.
