LA HABRA HEIGHTS (FOX 11 / AP) - Phil and Aida Lough faced off against city officials over a fertilizer made from llama feces. La Habra Heights sued the couple, saying the animals and open drums of animal waste at their home were a stinky, unsanitary mess.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the Loughs to stop producing their "Llama Brew," but that was only the start of a running battle that has brought turmoil to a suburb known for its quiet locale and sprawling lots.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the Loughs and other gadflies have filed thousands of public records requests. City Hall limited its public hours because the nine full-time employees are overwhelmed by daily visits from the group. The city's finance manager quit, saying she couldn't take the stress.

    Clippers owner Donald Sterling repeatedly consented to his wife selling the Clippers while facing the prospect of being stripped of the team by the NBA, then suddenly changed his mind and disregarded the terms of the family trust, Shelly Sterling's attorney told a judge today.
    Shelly Sterling acted properly in removing her husband as a director of the family trust that owns the Los Angeles Clippers, and she has the authority to sell the team despite Donald Sterling's objections, a judge tentatively ruled on Monday.
