On June 19, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decided the case of Desertrain v. Los Angeles against the city for ordering police to cite and arrest people who were living in their cars. I published an analysis of the court’s decision at http://jurist.org/forum/2014/06/linda-tashbook-homeless-ordinance.php. Cities should require their police departments to serve and protect the people who have to live outside–just like the serve and protect everybody else. Please read the article and pass it along.
