About Long Beach, California

Long Beach is located in south Los Angeles County.  Long Beach is home to roughly 500,000 residents.  The history of the land we know today as Long Beach dates back to the 1500s, when Native Americans occupied the area. It was famously coined as the “Bay of the Smokes” by Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who observed the native peoples’ ancient communication method of sending smoke signals at the hilltop we now call Signal Hill. In the late 1700s, the Spanish-owned land was rewarded to two Spanish soldiers and thus divided to become Rancho Los Cerritos and Rancho Los Alamitos. The first homes and school were built by developer William Wilmore in the 1880s, who named the area Wilmore City. Soon after, the growing population voted to incorporate the city and rename it the City of Long Beach. The City of Long Beach was officially incorporated in 1897. The town grew as a seaside resort with light agricultural uses. The discovery of oil in Long Beach and Signal Hill in 1921 triggered a rapid growth, with a million-dollar-per-month construction boom in Downtown. It also helped establish the town as a popular seaside resort and port city, with the boardwalk entertainment area known as The Pike attracting many visitors. The city is known for its waterfront attractions, including the permanently docked RMS Queen Mary and the Aquarium of the Pacific. California State University, Long Beach, one of the largest universities in California by enrollment, is within the city. Long Beach spans across fifty-two square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 90801, 90802, 90803, 90804, 90805, 90806, 90807, 90808, 90809, 90810, 90813, 90814, 90815, 90822, 90831, 90832, 90833, 90834, 90835, 90840, 90842, 90844, 90846, 90847, 90848, 90853, 90895, 90899. With offices in Burbank, Orange, and Riverside the Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. is just minutes away from Long Beach.

Featured Employment Case

Wallace v. Cnty. of Stanislaus, 245 Cal. App. 4th 109, 199 Cal. Rptr. 3d 462 (2016)
A deputy sheriff sued the county under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) for disability discrimination, failure to accommodate his disability, failure to engage in the interactive process, and failure to prevent discrimination. The Superior Court entered judgment on a special jury verdict in favor of the county on the disability discrimination cause of action, declared a mistrial on the remaining causes of action, and granted summary adjudication as to the cause of action for failure to prevent discrimination, and entered judgment on another jury’s verdict for county on the remaining causes of action after a second jury trial.  The Court of Appeal held that: (1) disability discrimination does not require proof of animosity or ill will; (2) the sheriff’s knee injury was “substantial motivating reason” for county’s decision to suspend deputy without pay; (3) placing deputy sheriff on leave of absence was not a lawful accommodation of his physical disability arising from his knee injury; and (4) the placement of the deputy sheriff on a leave of absence was substantial factor in causing him economic loss.  The opinion explains that “animus” is an imprecise term that can cause confusion when used in Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) disability discrimination cases with direct evidence that the employer’s motive for taking an adverse employment decision was the plaintiff’s actual or perceived disability, and to avoid this confusion, courts and practitioners would be better served by limiting their use of the terms “animus” and “ill will” to employment discrimination cases involving proof of an illegitimate motive by circumstantial evidence.
