Judges says LA City Council might have violated law

On Monday, a judge tentatively ruled that the Los Angeles City Council had violated the state's open meeting laws when it approved plans for a huge mall in South Los Angeles.

Essentially, the judge found the vote came without ample warning to the public - something that happens often as the council relies on "special meetings" for routine business.

If the judge holds to his initial ruling, the council would likely have to put the project back on the agenda and hold another vote.
