Occupy LA Class Participants Settle Claims for $2.45 Million against the City of Los Angeles

Following a two-and-a half-year battle, HSR partner Dan Stormer and associate Lincoln Ellis, along with Co-Counsel, reached a $2.45 million settlement with the City of Los Angeles. The payout resolves a class action suit of approximately 300 protestors, journalists, and bystanders who were arrested at the Occupy L.A. encampment at Los Angeles City Hall on November 29, 2011. Following their arrest the protestors were subject to unconstitutional detainee practices, such as being restrained for over six hours without bathroom facilities, food, or water, and held in custody for a longer period of time than is allowed for the misdemeanors they were charged with.
