Portland, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Black Lives Matter protesters that shut down a busy road in Portland are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
The protesters shut down Commercial Street last July. A judge tried to get protesters to reach a deal with police, but the judge, Paul Fritzsche, ended up recusing himself.
This is the first time the protesters will be in court since the judge recused himself.
