(Reuters) A U.S. judge has ordered the fired executive director of California’s Pacifica Foundation Radio in Berkeley to leave the office she has been occupying around the clock for the last two months, saying she was trespassing.

The Pacifica board voted 11-7 to fire Summer Reese, 40, from her $105,000 job in March. Days later, Reese returned with bolt cutters and moved into the office with her mother and other supporters, equipped with air mattresses for beds.

Reese’s presence in the office “constitutes a trespass and nuisance,” Alameda County Judge Ioana Petrou ruled Monday, granting the board a temporary restraining order against Reese.
