Los Angeles CNN — A group of veterans has filed a lawsuit to force homes to be built for them on land now used for elite sports facilities in Los Angeles. Fourteen unhoused veterans and the National Veterans Foundation filed a complaint in Central California's federal district court against the Department of Veterans Affairs on Tuesday night, demanding their needs be put first. 'Get the f**k off our land! Or build us housing,' Joshua Petitt, an unhoused Iraq War veteran, told CNN in an alley a hundred yards or so from the gates of the land, which is known as the West Los Angeles Campus.
