Food truck operators overturn ordinance

June 11, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Food truck operators won a major legal victory on where they can operate and how long they can stay at any one location within the city of Los Angeles.A Los Angeles city ordinance passed in 2006 limited the amount of time a food truck could remain parked. That ordinance had strong support from restaurant owners who considered the trucks unfair competition.

With the help of some UCLA law students, the city ordinance was overturned.

The law students say the city of Los Angeles overstepped its legal authority by approving the ordinance. The students claimed food trucks are largely regulated by the state.
