There’s an ongoing FBI investigation into the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that’s already led to the indictment of 18 former and current deputies for misconduct in county jails.
We learned today that the feds are seeking to expand their investigation by convincing deputies to provide evidence against colleagues and the department brass.
Also, this week an LA Superior Court Judge released a tentative ruling calling the zoning blueprint for Hollywood development “fundamentally flawed, and fatally so”. And that could even further delay or extinguish plans for the Hollywood Millennium proposal that’s already been approved by the city council.
There’s also the matter of the Los Angeles City Council giving its final approval this week to a new labor contract with some 8,200 Department of Water and Power workers that delays pay raises and revamps their pension plans.
