The Providence 6th Division District Court has postponed the court arraignment for the 41 arrested students to Feb. 12 and 14, according to a press statement from the Brown Divest Coalition. The students were previously scheduled to appear in court between Jan. 9 and 18. 

“The students' attorney reached out to ask if the University would agree to revised court dates after the students' return from winter break,” wrote University Spokesperson Brian Clark in an email to The Herald. “Brown agreed to that request to accommodate student schedules, and the students' attorney worked directly with the court to have all cases continued until mid-February.”

According to the BDC statement, the University has not dropped the trespassing charges against the students, who organized a second sit-in at University Hall on Dec. 11 to call for University divestment and permanent ceasefire in the Israel-Palestine conflict, The Herald previously reported.  

Correction: A previous version of this story did not include a photo of Providence's 6th District Court. The Herald regrets the error.
