L.A. settles lawsuit to provide 14,000 beds to the homeless

LOS ANGELES (KYMA, KECY) - The City of Los Angeles has settled a lawsuit agreeing to provide at least 14,000 permanent beds to its homeless population.

The settlement ends a battle with the L.A. Alliance for Human Rights.

The group of citizens, business owners, and community leaders filed the lawsuit against the City and L.A. County two years ago.

It demanded they provide shelter and services to ensure safe streets.

An attorney for the group said Friday the settlement does not provide services to address the issue holistically.

She said the case against the county continues and they will not stop working tirelessly to hold them accountable.
