Huntington Park, California

Huntington Park is a city in Los Angeles County.  It is located to the southeast of downtown Los Angeles.  It covers only three square miles but is home to more than sixty thousand residents. What is now the Southeast area of Los Angeles County remained a vast, unexplored, virgin, territory until the latter part of the 18th century. The first European of record to arrive to the area was Francisco Salvatore Lugo or Don Jose Maria Lugo, a soldier-explorer and personal friend of the king of Spain who claimed for himself and the king all the land that he surveyed. No formal recognition of ownership transpired until 1809, when Lugo’s son Antonio Maria Lugo applied for a grant for 29,000 acres to be known as Rancho San Antonio. This grant was confirmed by the Mexican government and later in 1866 by official U.S. patent. For almost a hundred years, the early history of Huntington Park is the history of the prosperous Lugo Family.  In the latter part of the 19th century many of the old ranchos began breaking up due to questionable deed rights and boundary challenges, especially as the governments of authority changed from Spain to México to the Republic of California, to the United States. But the Lugo’s held on longer than most. In the 20th century the history of Huntington Park passed from the Lugo Family to the farmers, developers and settlers who were preparing the way for the birth of the city. Among the prominent names in the city’s history were a pair of land developers named A.L. Burbank and E.V. Baker who came into the area in 1899. By 1901 they controlled a 100-acre tract of land called Sunrise Tract. They subdivided it and changed the name of the development to La Park. In 1902 to entice Henry Huntington to extend a line of his Pacific Electric Railway to and through their development, they granted Huntington a right-of-way for his railway along what is now Randolph Street and they changed the name to Huntington Park. However, the name La Park stuck and the Post Office did not change the name until the city was incorporated.  On September 1, 1906, a population of 526 residents was officially established and recognized as the City of Huntington Park. The changes that shaped Los Angeles from the late 1970s onward—the decline of American manufacturing that began in the 1970s; the rapid growth of newer suburbs in Orange County, the eastern San Gabriel, western San Fernando and Conejo valleys; the collapse of the aerospace and defense industry at the end of the Cold War; and the implosion of the Southern California real estate boom in the early 1990s did not leave Huntington Park unaffected.

Featured Employment Case

Begnal v. Canfield & Assocs., Inc., 78 Cal. App. 4th 66 (2000)
Four terminated hospital employees responsible for collecting patient accounts or admitting patients brought age discrimination claims under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) against their employer, a management firm hired by the hospital. The Superior Court entered judgment on a jury verdict for three employees but entered judgment notwithstanding the verdict (JNOV) with respect to one employee who was replaced with an older employee. Appeals were taken. The Court of Appeal held that, as a matter of first impression, evidence that an employee was replaced by an older person also in the protected class does not conclusively preclude an inference of age discrimination. Among other things, the Court of Appeal held as follows: Evidence that employee, a 40–year–old hospital admitting clerk and financial counselor, was replaced by an older person who transferred into the position did not conclusively establish the absence of age discrimination in violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) or preclude the jury from drawing other inferences, though the evidence weighed against the inference that the employee was terminated based upon her age.
