ACLU Suit Against VA Over Homeless Vets may Proceed, Judge Says

A federal judge Friday declined to dismiss the ACLU Foundation of Southern California’s lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs over the agency’s alleged failure to provide housing and services for thousands of mentally impaired veterans.

The ACLU sued the VA in June, saying the agency had misused large portions of its campus on L.A.’s Westside, and had failed to provide adequate housing and treatment for homeless veterans. The ACLU decried “enhanced sharing” agreements that have allowed entities not related to veteran care to use much of the sprawling campus at Wilshire and San Vicente boulevards.
