South Central Farm

Yesterday the farmers went to court:

LOS ANGELES -- The battle over the South Central Farm moved to court Wednesday, with a judge hearing arguments on whether a trial should be held in a lawsuit over the city's 2003 sale of the land to developer Ralph Horowitz.

The farmers filed a class-action suit against the city of Los Angeles and Horowitz in February 2004, arguing the sale should be nullified on grounds that there was no prior public notice.

The farmers claim in court papers they might have been able to raise funds to buy the land themselves had they known the land was available.
It seems like it's still too soon to tell anything, but in the meantime there's a fantastic new article, full of details, up at the SCF website. If you've got any questions about any part of the farm struggle, check it out.
