Suit Against LAPD Immigration Policy Alive

IN BRIEF Los Angeles County / LOS ANGELES

July 28, 2006|From Times Staff Reports

A Superior Court judge Thursday rejected a motion by the city of Los Angeles to dismiss a legal challenge to a Police Department policy prohibiting officers from asking witnesses and suspects about their immigration status.

The action keeps alive the lawsuit by Judicial Watch, which alleged that the LAPD's Special Order 40 violates federal and state law. "The LAPD has adopted what is in effect a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy with respect to immigration status," Judicial Watch alleged in its lawsuit.
