This is Kate Sosin, The LGBTQ+ reporter with The 19th. On Monday, I will start preparing a story about how the LA County Sheriff has failed to respond to or even acknowledge this FOIA request which concerns a bar that now has hundreds of public complaints of druggings and sexual assault allegations against it. I can be reached at 708-825-7199.
