Judge: Warrants to Search Homes of Kuehl, Others Properly Obtained

A Los Angeles judge said Thursday the sheriff’s department properly obtained warrants to search the home of county Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and other locations targeted in a political corruption probe, but he ordered the agency to turn over any items seized in the searches to the state Attorney General’s Office, which has taken over the investigation.

Attorneys for the sheriff’s department assured Superior Court Judge William Ryan the materials would be surrendered to state investigators within two weeks.

During a hearing in downtown Los Angeles, Ryan rebuffed requests by attorneys for Kuehl, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the nonprofit group Peace Over Violence to have the seized equipment returned. Attorneys argued that not having the equipment — including computers and hard drives — was hampering their clients’ ability to do their jobs.
