LA Police Protective League v. City of LA, B251796

In this case, plaintiffs seek to invalidate the Los Angeles Police Department’s policy regarding impounding vehicles, “Special Order 7,” which implements Vehicle Code sections 14602.6 and 14607.6 and directs officers when to use those sections and other state statutes governing impounds. Judgment entered in favor of plaintiffs is reversed, order granting defendants summary judgment is granted, and the trial court is directed to enter a new judgment in favor of defendants, where Special Order 7 is within the wide discretion of the police chief, and plaintiffs do not have standing to challenge the chief’s implementation of the state statutes.
