Lawyers for a coalition of residents and businesses in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, spearheaded by the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, filed court papers Friday indicating they’d reached an agreement to settle their lawsuit against the city and county over conditions in the neighborhood.

UC Hastings and the group, which includes a local resident confined to a wheelchair, a manager of a single-room-occupancy hotel, and the part-owner of a local cafe, filed a federal lawsuit last month claiming that local authorities allowed the Tenderloin to become “a containment zone” for drug and homelessness issues, a situation that has further deteriorated since the COVID-19 pandemic. The suit claimed that an influx of people living on Tenderloin streets has combined with the open-air drug sales in the neighborhood to make sidewalk conditions “insufferable.”
