Los Angeles—City Attorney Mike Feuer today announced that his office won two important victories on homeless housing. First, the California Supreme Court has denied the Petition for Review filed by the Venice Stakeholders Association against the Pacific Sunset: A Bridge Home Shelter. Second, the City prevailed against all the causes of action filed against it so far in the challenge to the Griffith Park Bridge Home Shelter.
"My office will continue to fight to defend the homeless housing we so urgently need," said Feuer. "These victories are important milestones in this vital work."
The Venice facility provides 154 beds near the largest homeless population on the City’s west side, and the Griffith Park shelter, which is set to open imminently, will have 100 beds. The facilities provide shelter, hygiene, storage, food, and case management services for up to 3 years.
