Last Monday, June 17, US District Judge Gutierrez denied the City of LA’s application to modify the preliminary injunction he issued in June 2011. Among many findings in his ruling, the denial stated,
“However, as the City has not shown a change in law or fact that would warrant modifying the language of the injunction, the Court is not persuaded that the alternate proposed modification is appropriate. Further, Defendant has submitted no evidence of a problem with individuals failing to move their property during a noticed cleaning operation.”
The LAPD and the City Attorney, with loud and public urging by the business community, have inexplicably been fighting this injunction since it was issued – failing at every level. This Monday, June 24, the Supreme Court denied hearing their appeal, allowing the injunction to stand. We are pleased to see the City’s unjust efforts continue to be denied by the courts.
LA CAN hopes…
