Updated: Feb 13

LOS ANGELES – City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that his office has filed two nuisance abatement lawsuits in an effort to clean up crime ridden properties in South Los Angeles and Hollywood.

"As we've seen today, a single property can endanger an entire neighborhood. Each property owner is responsible for maintaining their stake in our community," said City Attorney Mike Feuer. "If they fail to fulfill that obligation--ignoring criminal activity, for example, that jeopardizes neighborhood safety--my office will hold them accountable."

Narcotics and public nuisance abatement lawsuits have been filed against Mattie J. Sampson, the owner of a single family property located at 1233 West 52nd Street in South Los Angeles and her adult son Bobby J. Sampson, Jr., and David Lester Baxter the owner of 5655 and 5657 Lexington Avenue in Hollywood.
