Positive Results in MALDEF, ACLU, NDLON Lawsuit Challenging Costa Mesa Anti-Solicitation Ordinance

Last month, I wrote about the efforts of MALDEF, ACLU and the National Day Labor Organizing Network to protect the rights of day laborers in southern California. The organizations filed a lawsuit challenging an anti-solicitation ordinance implemented by the city of Costa Mesa, CA. Last week, the City of Costa Mesa agreed to place a moratorium on the enforcement of its ordinance pending the outcome of a Ninth Circuit appeal challenging a similar ordinance. The press release announcing the positive results from the lawsuit can be found here.
