LA Lawyer is suing Underground Nightclub, LA Occasion Society, for thousands and thousands
Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer sued the manager of an underground nightclub, LA Party Society, for violating the restrictions of the coronavirus (COVID-19) – and the city is demanding damages in the millions.
According to a Los Angeles Times report, the Fashion District nightclub at 1114 South Main St. is operating as usual, hosting crowded events during the pandemic, ignoring current regulations to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Additionally, at least five violent incidents have occurred at LA Party Society events in the past few months.
The lawsuit alleges violations of “laws against public harassment and unfair competition” against the nightclub manager Yves Oscar Jr. and two companies listed as owners of the property, both run by the investor David Taban. City lawyers are calling for fines ranging from $ 2,500 per day to up to $ 3.65 million per defendant.
Fire said during a press conference recently:
Aside from the bullets and attacks and other criminal activity, I want to stress that putting people in an indoor space – an unlicensed club – during the pandemic is the height of irresponsibility.
Fire added that the city is working with local police to cut off water and electricity to the venue, with the ultimate goal of a permanent closure.
