Mediation in Homeless Veterans Suit Falls Apart


by Associated Press


LOS ANGELES —The veterans say in court papers filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles that only one mediation session was held last fall and the case then fell dormant.

The veterans’ lawyer, David Sapp of the American Civil Liberties Union-Southern California, says a trial is needed urgently because the men are mentally disabled and homeless.

Veteran Affairs spokesman Dave Bayard says he cannot comment on pending litigation.

The ACLU says the government is renting out much of a large tract of land West Los Angeles that was supposed to house veterans.
