A woman who lives near Dodger Stadium is suing the city of Los Angeles, saying she has been denied records she needs to ascertain the impact of traffic on the neighborhoods around the home of the defending National League champions.
Judy Kameon maintains in her Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit filed Thursday that the Los Angeles Department of Transportation has yet to provide the information she needs and is entitled to obtain under the state’s Public Records Act.
“Ms. Kameon and her counsel have unsuccessfully tried to obtain this information from the city, which continues to fail to turn over the requested records,” the suit states.
A representative for the City Attorney’s Office could not be immediately reached for comment.
Kameon began her quest for the records in June 2018, according to her court papers.
Kameon and her lawyers determined that the “extreme delay in producing the responsive documents was unlawful and would no longer be tolerated” and the plaintiff decided to sue on behalf of herself and others who live near Dodger Stadium, the suit says. She’s seeking a court order directing the city to release the documents and an award of attorneys’ fees.
The documents sought by Kameon relate to traffic, transportation, air quality and noise, according to her lawsuit.
