Fresno Homeless News

"The City of Fresno and attorneys for several homeless people were back in court on Friday.
Lawyers with the ACLU will hammer out a settlement with the City of Fresno. They represented dozens of homeless people who lost their belongings when the city cleared out some homeless camps.

The City of Fresno agreed to pay more than $2 million last month but Mayor Alan Autry criticized the deal, causing the judge to consider throwing out the settlement.

The federal judge called Mayor Autry into court and the settlement is back on track and should be finalized soon." It's true

Will this mean anything for the City of Seattle? Will they continue to treat homeless people's survival gear with contempt? How about WSDOT? Parks? Anyone else?
