LA City Attorney’s Office Wins Two Cases on Homeless Shelters – NBC Los Angeles

Prosecutor Mike Feuer announced Tuesday that his office has won two cases related to the creation of homeless shelters in Los Angeles.

The California Supreme Court rejected the Venice Stakeholders Association filing for a review of the Pacific Sunset A Bridge Home Shelter, Feuer said.

Los Angeles also prevailed against all of the pleas raised against him in challenging the Griffith Park A Bridge Home Shelter.

"My office will continue to fight to defend the homeless shelters that we need so badly," said Feuer. "These victories are important milestones in this important work."

The Venice facility offers 154 beds near the largest homeless population on the west side of the city, and the Griffith Park shelter, which is about to open, will have 100 beds, the prosecutor said.

The facilities provide people with protection, hygiene, storage, food and case management for up to three years.

Venice residents had argued that A Bridge Home was too close to homes and schools, and the stakeholder association sued the plan to build it.

A lawsuit challenged Griffith Park Homeleses Shelter's environmental assessments by residents and owners, a group called Friends of Waverly Inc.
