Twelve protesters arrested in November 2011 for occupying a Center City Wells Fargo branch have been found not guilty by a Philadelphia jury.

Defendants claimed they were staging a 'Citizens’ Foreclosure' on the bank for engaging in discriminatory lending and sapping millions of dollars from the School District of Philadelphia. After viewing video of the protest and hearing defendants’ testimony, a jury found all 12 defendants not guilty on charges of conspiracy and trespassing.
