Las Lomas appeals court ruling

The Las Lomas Land Company, LLC announced today it will appeal a Superior Court ruling last month dismissing its lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles.

Despite repeated setbacks spanning several years, the land development company still plans on building homes tucked inside the hilly terrain that straddles the Santa Clarita and San Fernando valleys off Interstate 5 just north of Highway 14.

On Friday, company lawyers announced they will appeal a ruling rendered last month by Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe throwing out its lawsuit against Los Angeles for issuing a stop-work order on its plan to develop the land.

"We believe our claims are meritorious and are convinced that there are fundamental legal issues that must be resolved by the Court of Appeal," said Carlyle W. Hall Jr., counsel for Las Lomas.

"We were disappointed in the court's decision for ourselves, for the residents of Southern California, and for all those who recognize that the City Council broke the law," Hall said. "We are confident that the Court of Appeal will recognize that the City must answer for its illegal decision to halt its review of the Las Lomas Project."
