Suit seeks to stop closing of large California homeless camp

By CBSNews

A religious organization that serves the poor in Southern California has filed a lawsuit to stop local governments from forcing homeless people out of a big encampment along a riverbed.

The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court by Orange County Catholic Worker claims broad violations of constitutional protections by the governments of Orange County and the cities of Anaheim, Costa Mesa and Orange.

The lawsuit alleges the defendants forced homeless people from those jurisdictions into an area along the Santa Ana River, and the county is now trying to force those people out without a plan for shelter.

The suit comes a week after sheriff's deputies went tent to tent telling people the encampment is being closed.

Orange County spokeswoman Jennifer Nentwig says a response to the allegations is forthcoming.
