Los Angeles,CA, 8/13/2013 — The Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition, the organization that was formed to obtain Historic recognition for the site of the former WWII TCDS Internment Camp in Tujunga, CA has released the following statement in response to the lawsuit filed by Snowball West Investments against the City of Los Angeles:
On August 7, 2013, Snowball West Investments filed a lawsuit against the City of Los Angeles claiming that the Council’s designation of Historic-Cultural Monument status for Tuna Canyon was illegal.
The Tuna Canyon Detention Station Coalition is very disappointed at this filing and considers this lawsuit a distraction from the real purpose of commemorating this historic site so that future generations of Americans do not repeat the mistakes of the past. We call upon Snowball West to drop this lawsuit and to continue to work with the Coalition to create an accessible, permanent memorial site worthy of this City and the memory of the tragic events that occurred at this location during World War II.
