Weiss v. City of Los Angeles, 259868

In a petition action seeking a writ of mandate directing a City and Xerox to provide a legally sufficient initial review, in compliance with Los Angeles Municipal Code section 40215(a), once an alleged violator exercises his or her right to challenge a parking citation under that statute, the trial court's grant of a petition for a writ of mandate is affirmed where: 1) the City is required to conduct the initial review, and cannot contract with Xerox to perform that duty; and 2) the trial court properly awarded attorney fees to petitioner pursuant to the California private attorney general statute, Code of Civil Procedure section 1021.5.
