Title Injunction Sought to Stop Caltrans from Destroying Personal Property
 
Subtitle
 
Description A lawsuit filed on December 13 by civil rights groups charges the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) with violating the constitutional rights of homeless people by confiscating and destroying their property in ongoing sweeps. Plaintiffs have lost cherished and necessary items, including family heirlooms, photographs of loved ones, tents, sleeping bags, warm weather clothing, tools, food, camp stoves, bicycles, and personal documents. "Caltrans has been a major obstacle to getting my life together," said plaintiff James Leone. "Twice in six years, I've been left with only the clothes on my back. Twice I've lost everything I own in the world."
