“The Mall of America is pursuing legal measures to try to stop a planned Black Lives Matter protest at the shopping center on Wednesday,” writes MPR News reporter Tim Nelson.
The mall has filed a request for a temporary restraining order seeking to block the protest, announced last week. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for 2 p.m. in Minneapolis.
Susan Gaertner, with the Minneapolis firm Gray Plant Mooty, said her firm filed the order on behalf of the mall late Friday and attorneys are seeking a hearing before the scheduled protest. She wouldn’t elaborate on the matter.
