I write to request some body camera footage obtained by officers in your Hollywood Division on October 10, 2017. The LAPD was extraordinarily helpful to my client and me that night, responding quickly on-scene to assist my client after she was illegally locked out of her home by her landlords. Unfortunately, the landlords are insisting on their position and we are continuing to fight them in civil court. The body camera footage is important as it shows the landlord and property manager lying, including to the officers on scene.
Both officers were part of the Hollywood Division. They are:
- Officer Coronado, Badge No. 38985
- Officer Valenzuela, Badge No. 38161
They were dispatched to 6282 Vine Way, Los Angeles, CA, twice, on the night of October 10, 2017 to the early morning of October 11, 2017, when the events in question occurred. I also attach a declaration filed in the civil matter that may give more context in case it is helpful. Exhibit L of the declaration shows the card left by the officers, with a timestamp of 1:15 a.m. on October 11, 2017, Incident No. 0133.
Our trial date is currently set for March 7, 2018 given this is an eviction matter that is on fast-track, so if you can let me know the soonest the footage is available, we would be very appreciative.
