Calif. Court Upholds LA’s ‘Anti-Huddling’ Policy

     LOS ANGELES (CN) – A California appeals court refused to block a Los Angeles County policy change that prevents more than one officer from “huddling” with legal counsel after a deputy-involved shooting.

     The Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs (ALADS) was denied an injunction in trial court to stop the policy. Justice Bigelow upheld that decision, stating that the injunction was properly denied, since ALADS is unlikely to prevail under the Public Safety Officers’ Procedural Bill of Rights Act.
     “ALADS’ arguments fail to persuade us that the trial court’s interpretation is so infected with error that it mandates the court’s decision to deny a preliminary injunction,” Bigelow wrote.
