LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles city attorney is seeking to shut down an underground nightclub that is allegedly operating despite coronavirus restrictions. Officials say Monday that the LA Party Society has been operating without licenses and permits in the downtown Fashion District.

Prosecutors allege in a lawsuit filed Nov. 25 the club also operated in defiance of COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. City Attorney Mike Feuer also said the club is a “hub of violence and crime,” including several shootings over the summer.

The case is scheduled to go forward in court in April. It was not immediately clear if the defendants had attorneys who could speak on their behalf and efforts to reach them were unsuccessful.
