Office of the City Attorney
The San Diego City Attorney’s Office has put in place a review process for those persons who believe they were wrongly served with a gang injunction in the City of San Diego because they were not then and are not now a gang member, or who were properly served but have since ended their association with the gang. The review process is intended to be informal and does not require the filing of any papers with a court or any appearances before a judge. It does, however, require that you either submit a completed version of this form to the City Attorney’s Office or otherwise provide us with the information requested by this form.
By its own review, the San Diego Police Department’s Gang Unit determined that 22 of 35 (62 percent) of the individuals named in the Lincoln Park Gang Injunction and 29 of 50 (58 percent) of the individuals named in the Westcoast Crip Gang Injunction (1) did not have any gang related contacts in the past five years and (2) were not currently be known to be a gang members in the City of San Diego. The City Attorney’s Office filed declarations by SDPD Gang Detectives in the San Diego Superior Court, requesting those individuals be removed from the injunctions.
On May 9, 2019, Judge John S. Meyer granted the motion and signed the order modifying the Lincoln Park gang injunction.
On June 4, 2019, Judge Eddie C. Sturgeon granted the motion and signed the order modifying the Westcoast Crip gang injunction.
On July 28, 2020, Judge Eddie C. Sturgeon granted the second motion and signed the second order modifying the Westcoast Crip gang injunction.
The injunctions for remaining gang members continue to be in effect. Those who wish to petition for removal may submit the form linked at the top of this webpage.
