    Former Vice President Al Gore's daughter and other activists are due in court this week after being arrested during a natural gas pipeline protest in Boston.

    Karenna Gore, activist Tim DeChristopher and four others are expected to appear July 29 in Boston Municipal Court after pleading not guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace following the June 29 protest.

    They were among 23 protesters arrested for trying to block construction of Spectra Energy's West Roxbury Lateral pipeline by lying in a trench and refusing to move.

    Several of the protesters struck deals to have their charges reduced to civil infractions or to serve probation. Gore and the others declined.
