Remember how Occupy Wall Street epicenter Zuccotti Park got raided and the only one who anticipated it was Questlove? Occupy Los Angeles, likely the largest "Occupy" encampment in the county, is wary that it could be next.

Although the city council passed a resolution supporting a peaceful protest, organizers have sought a temporary restraining order so that police cannot evict the protesters camped out on City Hall's lawn without notice, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Chief Deputy City Atty. William Carter told the paper his office will oppose the filing in court tomorrow morning.
