A judge issued a preliminary injunction against members the Toonerville gang in response to a joint effort by the cities of Los Angeles and Glendale to curb the gang’s criminal activity.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David P. Yaffe issued his ruling Wednesday during a hearing attended by some of the gang members.

The cities filed suit on November, seeking a court order to prevent the gang from engaging in criminal and nuisance activities within:
A 4.5-square-mile area along the Los Angeles River that encompblankes the LAPD’s Northeast Division and part of Glendale
A 1.25-square-mile area where the gang operates in the LAPD’s Foothill Division.

The court order places restrictions on the ability of the gang members to blankociate in public, forbids them from being in public from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. within the designated zones, and bans their possession of weapons and graffiti tools.

The gang members can apply for exemptions to the curfew rule and the ban on their blankociation in public if they can show they have legitimate reasons. Reasons could include going to and from a job, or the fact they live with other members of the gang.

Requests for exemptions must be made first with the City Attorney’s Office. If that effort fails, the same requests can be made to Yaffe.
