Open Letter to Federal Court Judge addressing the Proposed Settlement in the Sidewalk Case …

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015


HNN-TV does not get involved in Legal Issues, but as it turns out there are issues addressed in this particular case that we feel it is necessary to get the word out.

On April 1, 2015 the City of Angeles announced through the office of Mayor Eric Garcetti that it is proposing a settlement of $1.3 Billion dollars in the case of Willits vs. City of Los Angeles.

This case is currently being heard in Federal Court by honorable Judge Consuelo Marshall and she will have the final say in what the agreement will be.

When we first heard about the proposed agreement and the outrages amount of money to be “allocated”, we thought it was an April’s Fool thing. However, it turns out that it is indeed something that the City of Los Angeles is planning to do with Angeleno’s Tax Dollars.

Online Blogger John Walsh ( and sums it up pretty nicely in his latest posting, which also includes a long Open Letter by two community groups who are seemingly fed up with the ongoing “fleecing” of the city’s funds.
