No One Can Really Tell The Truth Like John Walsh
Court says L.A. must pay $700,000 to lawyers who were at first willing to settle for a whole lot less for successfully defending skid row homeless screwed by the City of LA after their belongings were confiscated off the sidewalk by fascistic LAPD Cops
The city of Los Angeles must pay $700,000 to lawyers for skid row homeless people who successfully challenged a ban on sleeping in the streets making the City Attorney look like a real asshole a federal appeals court has ruled!
The city had argued arrogantly that it should not have to pay a red cent of attorneys’ fees because it settled the underlying case in 2007. But under the settlement, the city agreed to stop arresting people camped out overnight on sidewalks until it could provide 1,250 new units of supportive housing.
Upholding a lower court ruling, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ripped Garcetti a new asshole when the homeless people prevailed and their attorneys’ fees must be paid.
The homeless legal team may seek more fees but would wait to hear if the phony liberal city attorney decides to further appeal the long-running case.
Mike Feuer just received the ruling and is reviewing “all our pitiful options,” said his scum suck spokesman, Rob Wilcox.
The city enacted its sidewalk sleeping ban in the early 1900s as a fascistic way to fight vagrancy. In 2002, then homeless-hater LAPD Chief William J. Bratton called for taking down the tent cities that rise each night on skid row, but he held off enforcing the edict after the lawsuit was filed the following year.
In 2006, the court righteously found it was cruel and unusual punishment for the city to roust homeless people without providing them beds. The city reported opening an additional 771 permanent supporting housing bug-infested beds last year, but it has not reached the goal of 1,250 units. At least 58,000 people in Los Angeles County are homeless on an average night, including 22,000 people who live in the city streets and the Mayor and City Council don’t give a crap!
