Santa Ana Taco Truck Vendors win lawsuit

A victory for the taco truck community came down in a ruling that has voided Santa Ana's anti taco truck ordinance. This is good news for the Los Angeles taco truck community as the Santa Ana ordinance was almost identical to the current LA ordinance.

Truck vendors win lawsuit

The judge's decision voids Santa Ana's regulations about when food can be sold and how often vehicles must shift spots.
The Orange County Register

SANTA ANA – An Orange County judge ruled Friday that Santa Ana can't require food trucks to move every 90 minutes or limit their hours of operation, a decision that strikes at the heart of the city's rules for the vehicles.

After a four-day trial, Judge W. Michael Hayes determined that the city failed to prove the food vendors threatened public safety. He also found truck owners would suffer irreparable losses once the Santa Ana required them to move every 90 minutes and limited their hours from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to a letter sent to attorneys Friday.

"There was a lot of uncertainty, but with what the judge has said we're relieved," said vendor Roberto Guzman, one of the plaintiffs. "We feel good and want to work even harder."

Hayes asked plaintiffs to draft paperwork to formally strike the rules.

Other cities in Orange County working on regulating food trucks were watching the case. Santa Ana adopted its rules after residents complained of litter and noise from the trucks. The city also argued the trucks would worsen the quality of neighborhoods.

  8. $510,000 Mortgage for Under $1,641/Month!
    The $1,640.36 payment is based on the borrower selecting the minimum monthly payment option on a $510,000 adjustable first mortgage loan with an interest rate of 7.633%, a 7.584% APR. The monthly payment is fixed for the first 30 days and will adjust monthly thereafter. The minimum monthly payment option is calculated by amortizing the loan balance over the remaining term of the loan at an interest rate of 1.000%. By selecting this option, the loan has the potential for negative amortization. The minimum monthly payment option is subject to recasting every 5 years or if the principal balance reaches 110% of the original loan balance. The borrower also has the option of making an interest-only payment or making principal and interest payments amortized over either 15 or 30 years. For example, if the borrower selects to make principal and interest payments amortized over 30 years, the monthly payment will be $3,612.56. These terms are available for first mortgage loans. To qualify for this monthly payment, the property must be owner occupied single family residence and a loan-to-value ratio of 80%. Credit restrictions may apply. Rate is variable and subject to change daily without notice.
