Earlier, the Clog said the tree-sit would be over soon, and lo and behold, Judge Barbara Miller hath delivered. An injunction that prevented the university from building on the oak grove will be lifted in a week, enough time for the university’s opponents to appeal.

But what’s more interesting is the judge’s decision about court costs—it’s no secret that the university has “wasted” trillions, maybe even hundreds of thousands (seriously, they haven’t spent trillions) of dollars on this whole mess, and Judge Miller decided that the city of Berkeley, the California Oak Foundation, and the Panoramic Hill Association must pay for 85 percent of the university’s court costs.

But will this stop the tree people? Probably not. After all, there are other ways of fighting the university than hanging out in trees all day.
