New Orleans drops charges

against Catholics

New Orleans prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against two protesters who were arrested after they refused to leave a Catholic church closed by the archdiocese.

Poppy Z. Brite and Hunter Harris III appeared in court Wednesday but weren't arraigned on charges of trespassing and resisting arrest. City attorneys said they would not proceed with the case. City officials said the goal of ousting the protesters had been reached.
