The city of Los Angeles is weighing a lawsuit against Occupy LA protesters to recoup financial damages sustained during the two-month encampment.

Like they have jobs to pay any judgement.
Their underwriters have the cash.
You invited a monster to your house,the monster trashed your house,and over stayed the invite,and now you want to sue????
Amen! LA never sees a dime.
Send the bill to Obama.
They're just the actors. The financing comes from Soros and his ilk.
I like it. Get personal judgements and garnish their unemployment and welfare checks.
Well, first they were going to give them 10’s of thousands of square feet of office space, now this!
If they had carted them out after 48 hours, none of this would have happened.
Police broke up the camp last month and arrested nearly 300 people. An estimated $1.6 million was spent on police overtime.
All LA had to do was stop them on day one. Its LAs fault they spent overtime and maintenance budget; not the occupiers. Who, exactly would they sue? Individuals? Is Occupy a corporation? (Boy wouldnt THAT be ironic!)
If they sue individuals, which ones? Did LA identify all the individuals? I can see the third grade reasoning of, if-one-then-everybody, as in; if you didnt bring enough gum for everybody you cant chew it. (To which I replied, but thats communism. Let them bring their own gum. Whereupon I met the board of education.)
No worries... They have wealthy parents.
Sue Alcalde Villaraigosa, he let them keep up the lawlessness.
they must have some money backing them
someone is paying for all those food service trucks and food and workers
I think if this was Obambi’s community organization attempt for this next election, he is even a failure at that
Won’t mean a thing if they’re not minors.
I say keep them tied up in the bureaucracy for as long as possible, just for fun.
If I were the Occu-pests’ lawyer, I’d argue that the City consented to the occupiers’ violations. Consented week after week after week.
I feel for the taxpayers of this misguided city, though. Their leaders coddle and tolerate these hippie filth, then the same leaders expect the filth to pay the costs? Good luck.
Most people think it was an attempt to cover up the failures of Obama, which had been starting to percolate, even in the media.
You and know it’s BS finger-pointing time. All posturing.
Libs suing libs? Lol.
i think this was Obama trying to do local type community organizing on a national scale
anbd it was pathetically stupid and inept
Actually a lot of them apparently come from “1%” families and are quite well off.
The Chinese send in tanks to crush occupiers and the Americans send in lawyers to crush the occupiers. Result is the same, oppress any dissent against the ruling class. One uses bloody method and the other uses financial method, but the theme is the same. It is easy to tell the other side that one must put up the shutdown of commerce, in China workers who joined the students can use lead pipes and attack the police, violate all public ordnance and laws on demonstrations, and we say these demonstrators had the right to stay forever!!!! Now our elites face the same type of demonstration. Numbers substantially smaller, lesser scale of violence against our police (at least they got close enough to tear down tents), occupation duration lot less and our leaders cannot take the pressure and order the police to move in to remove them and now decide to cripple OWS movement using lawyers. I cannot imagine if the OWS was in the tens of thousands, blockade police movements and fought them with lead pipe clubs. Will American elites call in gunship strikes, declare martial law and have them all sent to FEMA camps??!!!!! The theme of my posting is our elites are quick to lecture others, but fall short when it happens to them. OWS will be back in the spring when the weather gets better. Hope the city leaders are ready.
Oh I know that. It doesn’t matter who their parents are, if the OWS’ers are adults.
As adults, they are fully responsible for their own stupidity.
Yep. Take it out of his stash.
Maybe the Occupunks can go on a payment plan, sort of like their student loans.
The city should sue George Soros and the Obama campaign.
Make them spend their cash.
Ha ha, communist vs. communist. Kind of like Hitler fighting Stalin.
