The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado is preparing for a pretrial conference in U.S. District Court on its lawsuit over plans to handle protesters during the Democratic National Convention.

The pretrial conference is scheduled to get under way Monday afternoon.

The ACLU has sued Denver, the deputy chief of operations for Denver police, the Secret Service and the Secret Service director.

The ACLU and protest groups have complained that a public demonstration zone and route for marches being set up during the convention in August will not be within earshot or view of delegates entering the Pepsi Center, where the convention will be held.

The defendants have asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
