HSRR Challenges Constitutionality of Special Privileges Given to Farmers Field Football Project

Today, Dan Stormer and Josh Piovia-Scott of Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick, along with the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and Robert D. Newman, Attorney at Law, filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the law that granted special privileges for the Farmers Field football project in downtown Los Angeles. The lawsuit, which has enormous constitutional and environmental consequences for the citizens and state of California, targets California State Senate Bill 292 as representing an unnecessary and unfair attack on the community protections provided by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). A project of this size will have substantial environmental and other health impacts on surrounding communities, most of which are working class communities of color, and a robust and constitutionally valid process is crucial to protecting community health.  See the extensive news coverage of the case here:
