Court Rules in Favor of the City in Spencer v City of Palos Verdes Estates Law Suit

Post Date:02/14/2018 9:03 AM

“On Monday the federal court dismissed the “localism” lawsuit against the City of Palos Verdes Estates and former Police Chief Jeff Kepley brought by two surfers who claimed they were denied access to a surfing area in Lunada Bay by local surfers and the City did not do enough to investigate or prosecute these crimes. After a thorough review of the evidence, the federal court dismissed the lawsuit, stating that “ no reasonable jury could find that Plaintiffs’ equal protection rights were violated, Plaintiffs’ Equal Protection Claim must be wiped out.” On that basis the Court granted the City’s motion to dismiss, thereby terminating the federal lawsuit against the City.”

 --- Mayor James Vandever, City of Palos Verdes Estates
