Yet another stay-away order — one of 12 issued against protesters in connection with the Nov. 9 Occupy Cal protests — was lifted Wednesday.

UC Berkeley graduate student Amanda Armstrong had her stay-away order lifted after Armstrong’s attorney Jeff Wozniak met with the judge and a deputy district attorney in chambers Wednesday morning, according to Deputy District Attorney Teresa Drenick.

The stay-away orders were issued to 12 of the 13 charged protesters at a series of arraignments last month and prevented the protesters from being within 100 yards of UC Berkeley property except for class and work-related activities. UC Berkeley associate English professor Celeste Langan was the only one who was charged but not barred from campus.

Now, only five stay-away orders remain. Four of the orders were overturned April 2, and on Friday, the orders against UC Berkeley students Ramon Quintero and Ricardo Gomez were lifted as well.

Drenick has said in the past that the fate of the remaining stay-away orders will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
