Bill Quigley, a New Orleans civil rights attorney, was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace during a confrontation at the November 7 New Orleans city council meeting.

Bill Quigley, a New Orleans civil rights attorney, was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace during a confrontation at the November 7 New Orleans city council meeting. Quigley has worked in defending public housing in recent court battles.

At the council meeting, former residents of public housing were barred from re-entering the council chamber. At that time, a sheriff's deputy handcuffed Quigley and slammed him against a wall. He was detained and released after being charged with disturbing the peace. `Quigley stated `we live in a system where if you cheer or chant in the City Council you get arrested, but you can demolish 4,500 people's apartments and everybody's supposed to go along with that? That's not going to happen.'

As the fight for just housing continues, Quigley said, "there's going to be a lot more disturbing the peace before this is all over, I'm afraid.''
