The homeless crisis has wide-ranging consequences to property owners and renters on the one hand and to the homeless themselves on the other. It is unclear if government services alone can adequately redress homelessness in Los Angeles. This finding has led local courts recently to increasingly limit the Police’s powers to remove homeless possessions as well the Sanitation Department’s authority to clean up homeless encampments. Since municipal authorities are not providing all the homeless with options of temporary shelter, local courts may continue to limit the former’s ability to restrict the latter’s right to occupy public spaces.
