NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) —Tennessee state troopers for the second straight night arrested more than two dozen Wall Street protesters for defying a new nighttime curfew imposed by the state’s Republican governor in an effort to disband an encampment near the Capitol. And for a second time, a Nashville night judge dismissed the protesters’ arrest warrants. The Tennessean newspaper reported early Saturday morning (http://tnne.ws/vE2PXN ) that Magistrate Tom Nelson told troopers delivering the protesters to jail that he could “find no authority anywhere for anyone to authorize a curfew anywhere on Legislative Plaza.”
