SAN PEDRO, Calif. — Aug. 30, 2010 — On August 26, 2010, the U.S. District Court issued a decision in the ATA v. City of LA lawsuit in favor of the City holding that the entire Concession Agreement is enforceable. However, Los Angeles Executive Director Geraldine Knatz, Ph.D., has announced that she will not take action to enforce the previously enjoined provisions of the Concession Agreement before the next meeting of the Board of Harbor Commissioners.

This will give Los Angeles Harbor Department staff the opportunity to recommend next steps, which may include reasonable extensions of time for compliance. The next meeting of the Los Angeles Harbor Commission is currently anticipated to take place on Sept. 16 or 23, 2010.
