Rancho Santa Margarita - The ACLU is suing to enjoin the OCDA from enforcing gang injunctions in defense of gang member rights in case #SACV09-1090. In response, the OCDA and OPD have bowed to defend the lawsuit, beginning today, Monday, Nov. 8, 2010 and expected to last for approximately 20 court days.
On july 7, 2010, the OCDA warned members of an Anaheim criminal street gang that they have been permanently enjoined from terrorizing the community and acting as a public nuisance in the eighth civil gang injunction to be brought against an Orange County gang. This was the second injunction in the City of Anaheim and the second to be brought against the institution of the gang as the sole defendant.
