San Dimas, California

San Dimas is a City in the easternmost section of the San Gabriel Valley.  It covers approximately sixteen square miles, and encompasses the following zip codes: 91724, 91741, 91750, and 91773. San Dimas is a community whose roots go deep into the nineteenth century. The first Americans arriving in the locality presently known as San Dimas were a band of explorers headed by Jedediah Strong Smith, who camped at a Cienega (marshy area), later called Mud Springs, in 1826. A monument on E. Arrow Highway marks the approximate location.  In 1837 two Spanish Dons, Señor Ignacio Palomares and Señor Ricardo Vejar came into these vast semi-arid and wilderness pastures. Their immense land grant was christened Rancho San Jose and was a range for vast herds of cattle. The favorite mythical story is that outlaws operating from inaccessible haunts in the San Dimas Canyon, often made raids on these cattle. Some claim they (the outlaws) were renegade Indians. Señor Palomares, who had come from Sonora, Mexico, where there had been a village called San Dimas, angrily referred to Dismas, the repentant thief of the cross. The story has it that Don’s allusion suggested a name for the canyon – “San Dimas Canyon.” The City of San Dimas assumed its name from the canyon.  An era of droughts and financial reverses resulted in the break-up of the California Rancho. Meanwhile, the Mud Springs had become the location for a station of the Banning Stage Line, with Dennis Clancy in charge. In the 1860s, the Clancy family were the first American residents and their two children the first to be born here. The Mud Springs site on Palomares Street has long been dry.  The Teague family, the first farmers to settle in this area, came in 1878. They leased large acreage upon which they raised grain until the citrus era dawned, and San Dimas became the “Queen of the citrus belt” in Southern California. With the growth of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, the citrus groves of the early 1900s have, in turn, given way to urbanization, and in 1960 (August 4) the citizens of San Dimas incorporated as a city so that they might chart the course of their development more effectively. Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from a primarily rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. The completion of new freeways (Foothill and Orange Freeways) will benefit the City since it is in a fortunate position to take advantage of this easy access to markets. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area, which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a beautiful Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office. A bright future lies ahead for San Dimas. Its growth is based upon a solid foundation, and the projections are that in a decade, its population will reach 40,000, and its reputation as a City that tries “to preserve the western spirit” will grow with the population growth. The Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. has offices in Burbank, Orange, and Riverside all of which are only minutes away from San Dimas.

Featured Employment Case

Castro-Ramirez v. Dependable Highway Express, Inc., 2 Cal. App. 5th 1028, 207 Cal. Rptr. 3d 120 (2016)
A former employee sued for disability discrimination, failure to prevent discrimination, and retaliation under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), as well as wrongful termination in violation of public policy. The Superior Court granted summary judgment for the employer.  The Court of Appeal, Flier, J., held that: (1) the employee’s association with a physically disabled person was itself a “physical disability” under FEHA; (2) a fact issue existed as to whether supervisor’s stated justification for terminating employee was pretext for discrimination; and (3) a fact issue existed as to whether there was a causal link between employee’s complaints to employer and his termination.  The Court of Appeal explained in its opinion that “FEHA provides a cause of action for associational disability discrimination, although it is a seldom-litigated cause of action. (Rope v. Auto–Chlor System of Washington, Inc. (2013) 220 Cal.App.4th 635, 656–657, 163 Cal.Rptr.3d 392 (Rope), superseded by statute on another ground.) As to disability discrimination generally, FEHA makes it unlawful for an employer, “because of the … physical disability … of any person, … to discharge the person from employment … or to discriminate against the person … in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment.” (Gov. Code, § 12940, subd. (a).) The very definition of a “physical disability” embraces association with a physically disabled person. FEHA explains that the phrase “ ‘physical disability’ … includes a perception … that the person is associated with a person who has, or is perceived to have” a physical disability. (§ 12926, subd. (o).) Accordingly, when FEHA forbids discrimination based on a disability, it also forbids discrimination based on a person’s association with another who has a disability.”
