The Times reported on Saturday that the lawsuit was filed by a group called Citizens for Odor Nuisance Abatement.

According to the lawsuit, the stink is costing area businesses. For example: the boxer Floyd Mayweather and his entourage once allegedly booked a number of rooms at La Valencia Hotel but left after 15 minutes because of the smell. 

At issue is a fence erected by City Hall, which keeps people away from the rocks. If humans were allowed near the rocks, the animals would do their business elsewhere, the lawsuit argues. 

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
