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.
