J20 prosecutions end in defeat as government files motion to dismiss all remaining cases

The 6th of July, 2018 will forever be known to some as "V-J20 day," the day prosecutors threw in the towel and filed a motion to dismiss all remaining charges stemming from Trump's Inauguration without prejudice. Defeated by two juries and judicial sanctions for willfully hiding exculpatory evidences, prosecutors have finally given up and Disrupt J20 has won.

J20 of course is not entirely over. A massive civil case is pending for the unlawful mass arrest, just like the Becker and Pershing Park cases that cost the DC government millions of dollars in settlements.
