The Penticton Indian Band and a group of protestors were in and out of court quickly today.
The case, involving protesters who occupied the Penticton Indian Band office last week was adjourned quickly after it came before Justice Patrice Abrioux in B.C. Supreme Court in Penticton Wednesday morning.
Steve Schwartz, representing the band administration, moved to adjourn the case, saying the protestors had abided by an injunction obtained by the band last week in Kelowna at the Supreme Court of Canada.
“The blockade is down. It has not been back up,” said Schwarz.
Abrioux said the court order that was in effect as of Friday has now ended, but added that the case could proceed if the band office property is occupied again.
“The result may well be an order that does not expire,” he said.
