I'm on the legal team. Foremost we will be working hard with lawyers with the hope that no one should pay any fines. But, we will also be preparing for covering needed costs by setting up a legal fund shortly. The legal team doesn't have a set meeting tomorrow, but I'll make that information available as soon as we determine it.
As an aside, not that bail is an issue (yet), I should also note that from the GA on 9/28, the following proposal reached consensus: "In the rare event that someone needs bail because they were protesting or arrested in this square and its occupation, then we would provide bail money from the general funds.  If it exceeds $1000, they will bring that to the GA."

Can someone from the finance and/or legal teams set this up?

With 700 arrested, that's $21K to $42K, plus 80 arrested the week before, which could be anywhere from $8K up, depending on how many tickets were given. That's a lot of money but doable given the results of previous fundraising, especially stretched out over two and a half months to raise the money.

Can we start a legal defense fund to pay for these fines? We have been able to raise money so quickly, I think we could raise the entire amount before our desk appearances in December.
