Supreme Court Won't Consider Ban on Seizure of Property from Homeless in Los Angeles

A long-running dispute over a controversial cleanup campaign on downtown's skid row ended Monday when theU.S. Supreme Court refused to consider lifting an order that bans the city of Los Angeles from destroying property left unattended by homeless people.

The court, without comment, left standing a lower-court ruling that prevents the city from disposing of the contents of shopping carts and cardboard shanties that homeless people leave behind temporarily while using a restroom, filling water jugs or lining up for meals.
