Homeless sue against closure of crime-plagued park

In Bakersfield, California, a group of homeless persons are suing to prevent the city from closing International Square Park, which municipal authorities say has become a magnet for alcohol, drugs and crime. The complainants, who are being assisted by a lawyer from the federally funded Legal Services Corporation affiliate Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance, point out that the park has provided shade and comfort to many homeless people.
