LOS ANGELES, CBSLA – A downtown Covina bar owned by a man whose altercation with a Los Angeles County health inspector was filmed in December is suing the county for allegedly violating emergency medical care orders.
A lawsuit was filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court against Bread & Barley Inc. for allegedly violating the Los Angeles County Code and seeking an injunction against public nuisance.
Looks like it. Says Los Angeles County: No television for meals away from home in local restaurants.
The lawsuit calls for prohibiting the company from violating medical regulations and allowing inspectors to monitor compliance.
Despite an order from the Department of Health, numerous warnings and reminders, and an order to close the restaurant, the defendant held an outdoor dinner at his restaurant and continued it after his public health license was suspended, the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit also requires the cafe to pay civil fines for each day that management violated health and counting codes.
In December, an altercation was filmed between the owner of Bread & Barley and a Los Angeles County health inspector, showing how frustrated the owner was about the restrictions related to the coronavirus.
I’m desperate. Who’s going to pay for his car? Who pays the rent for my cook? Owner Carlos Roman was heard blocking his truck from a health inspector’s vehicle.
In a video posted to YouTube, a female police officer gestured to Roman to move her truck, which was parked behind the health inspector’s vehicle.
A statement from the health department shows that the inspector found two clients eating in violation of applicable protocols.
Roman said the customers were at the bank, not on his property.
Bread & Barley’s license was suspended for non-compliance with a health order, the lawsuit said.
The 22nd. A closure notice was posted on the front door of the pub in December, but the next day the inspector saw customers queuing at the entrance and leaving with only items to take home, the lawsuit says.
The inspector noted that the outdoor restaurant tables were still set up, but no customers were eating on site, the complaint said. The lawsuit shows that a subpoena and a written order were issued to compel Bread & Barley to take the necessary corrective action.
On the 12th. In January, the county sent a letter to Bread & Barley demanding immediate compliance with health and safety regulations and an end to operations, according to the lawsuit.
Bread & Barley’s public health permit was issued on the 13th. Janvier’s license was revoked and the restaurant was asked in writing to cease operations, according to the lawsuit.
According to the complaint, the pub was open at least from the 7th to the 20th. December and January 20 through 13 outdoors operated with a suspended and/or revoked health license.
The Los Angeles Superior Court filed lawsuits Wednesday against Cronies Sports Grill on Kanan Road in Agoura Hills and Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill on Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank.
Starting Friday, outdoor dining will again be allowed in Los Angeles County.
