After losing a court battle, the East Los Angeles Health Task Force has vacated the offices it occupied for 17 years at 4716 E. Brooklyn Ave. The task force, which offers free health screenings for mostly senior citizens, has moved to 2120 E. 6th St. The task force's move came after months of legal wrangling brought on by a lawsuit filed by the county, which owns Centro Maravilla, where the task force had been operating.

A Superior Court judge has blocked the county from removing a senior citizens clinic from the space it has occupied for 17 years. In March, county officials evicted the staff of the East Los Angeles Health Task Force and changed the office locks after clinic officials refused to move into a space half the size of the 3,100-square-foot location at Centro Maravilla, 4716 E. Brooklyn Ave.

A trial is scheduled to begin Thursday to decide a civil lawsuit brought by the county in its effort to evict the East Los Angeles Health Task Force from its space at Centro Maravilla. The task force principally provides health screenings for senior citizens. The county wanted the clinic to share its 3,100-square-foot space with three other agencies, but clinic officials balked. In March, the county dispatched sheriff's deputies to evict the staff and change the locks on the building.
