Los Angeles Class Action Lawsuit
A Los Angeles class action lawsuit has been filed against, you guessed it, Los Angeles County for issuing an order that forces indoor malls and their interior retailers to remain closed, calling the order “patently discriminatory” and “blatantly unconstitutional.”
The class action claims that Los Angeles County has kept all indoor portions and operations of malls and shopping centers closed despite the California Department of Public Health allowing counties statewide to reopen indoor malls and shopping centers at 25 percent capacity with certain restrictions to protect public health.
The class action can be found under the name: Rivas Sports, Inc., et al. v. County of Los Angeles et al., Case No. 2:20-cv-08312, C.D. CA.

The Indoor Mall and Retailers Complaint
According to the class action, the Los Angeles County’s order was “out of line with statewide standards, as well as standards established by state and local governments nationwide.
This stands in stark contrast to the County’s treatment of virtually every other retail establishment, including large and small scale retailers and even salons and barbershops—all of which were permitted to reopen immediately and operate at a [maximum] at 25% capacity (in accordance with state guidelines.
Because of the September 2, 2020 order, hundreds of other businesses at Del Amo and other indoor malls and shopping centers in the County also remain closed to the public, depriving them of badly needed revenue and thousands of employees of gainful employment—all without any justification whatsoever or means to challenge the government’s overreaching and arbitrary action.”
