LOS ANGELES – City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that his office has filed a lawsuit against the owners of the popular Motel 6 hospitality chain, as well as the managers of the chain’s property in Sylmar, seeking an injunction to curb rampant drug sales, gang and prostitution activity occurring at the facility.

The litigation is part of a sustained and concentrated effort by Feuer and law enforcement to target properties that are magnets for gangs, guns, narcotics and other criminal activity.

"Families and other visitors staying at a motel that's part of a respected, national chain should never be subjected to dangerous criminal activity in the next room, at the pool or in the parking lot," said Feuer. "And neighboring residents and businesses shouldn't have to tolerate these alleged conditions in their community. We're demanding the absentee owners of the Motel 6 chain be accountable for making this property a safe, secure neighbor."
