Hundreds of demonstrators marched through downtown Los Angeles on Saturday, one of several protests across California decrying the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn abortion rights. Marchers gathered near LA City Hall starting around 10 a.m. carrying signs that said, “my body, my choice” and “abort the court.” A separate protest was also planned outside the Federal Building on the city’s west side. Large demonstrations opposed to the overturning of Roe v. Wade were also expected Saturday in San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento. The Los Angeles Police Department declared an unlawful assembly late Friday after protestors filled downtown streets and some briefly blocked traffic on two freeways.
A federal jury has awarded $21 million to the family of a pregnant teen who was shot and killed by undercover police officers in Northern California five years ago. Elena Mondragon was a passenger in a car that collided with a police van. Officers opened fire, fatally shooting Mondragon. She was 16 and in her first trimester of pregnancy. Her family’s wrongful-death complaint described the killing as “a botched covert arrest operation." Lawyers say the jury decided to split culpability between the man driving the car and the officers, so that the city of Fremont will likely supply about $10 million of the award. Fremont officials did not immediately comment on the jury’s decision.
