Miles v. Wesley, 13-55620

In an action challenging on statutory and constitutional grounds the Los Angeles Superior Court's plan to consolidate unlawful detainer actions into hub courts, the district court's dismissal on federal abstention grounds is affirmed where the court properly abstained under O'Shea v. Littleton, 414 U.S. 488 (1974), because the core of plaintiffs' challenge was to the Superior Court's management of its shrinking resources, and they sought heavy federal interference in the administration of the state judicial system.
