L.A. City and County must move homeless people away from freeway encampments and into shelters or alternative sites instead, according to a landmark new ruling that goes into effect on May 22.

It's been handed down by Judge David O. Carter, as part of a lawsuit that accuses local government of neglecting the homelessness crisis in the region.
