Another Intervention by OWS into the Realm "Experts" Hope to Reserve to Themselves

In February Occupy the SEC filed a comment with the agency as part of the rule-making process. I posted on that at the time because it seemed to me to be an important step in the movement's trajectory and because, more generally, it represented an important example of the use of expertise in democratic politics. I recently learned that last week Occupy Wall Street - Alternative Banking Group has filed an amicus brief as part of an appeals case regarding the proposed settlement between the SEC and Citigroup. I am noting this here for the same reasons.
