The city of Cleveland is expected to approve revised regulations regarding protesters for the Republican National Convention.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the city about the restrictions.

A judge sided with the ACLU, and said the city was being too broad with its restrictions. The judge said it was unconstitutional to tell free citizens where they can protest, where they can set up and where they can spread their message.

The ACLU and the city of Cleveland worked out a settlement.

City officials would not reveal details of the settlement but Cleveland 19 News learned it will include a marching route hundreds of feet closer to Progressive Field, where RNC events will be held.

The city will also add extended hours to protest, along with buffer hours between groups.

All the final details on the settlement will be released Wednesday morning.
