Beverly Hills School District Files Legal Petition Against MTA

The Beverly Hills Unified School District filed a petition Monday seeking a court order compelling the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to release technical information on tunneling and station locations related to the Westside Subway Extension.

In a petition filed with Los Angeles County Superior Court, the BHUSD alleges that MTA officials have violated the California Public Records Act by improperly withholding public documents requested by the BHUSD over a period of several months.
