"L.A. city attorney targets hard-partying homes in Hollywood Hills"

LAT:

It’s a common occurrence in the affluent Hollywood Hills: Homeowners and property managers rent out their homes to short-term guests who throw raucous events flowing with booze, loud music and hundreds of attendees.

...

In a pair of criminal complaints filed Tuesday, City Atty. Mike Feuer has charged the owner of a single-family home in the 7800 block of Electra Drive and the property manager of a home in the 2600 block of La Cuesta Drive with multiple misdemeanors related to maintaining a public nuisance.

...

the property manager of the La Cuesta Drive estate . . . said neighbors were too sensitive.

“It’s like if anyone talks in the pool area or sneezes, complaints are filed that have no validity,”
