Grand View Cemetery - Glendale, California - On Sunday, May 25th, 2008, Grand View Cemetery was open for four hours over the Memorial Day weekend. Visitors brought flowers and rakes, as they cleaned grave sites and laid flowers during the holiday weekend.
While no date is set for the next opening, lawyers are working toward a goal to get future openings of at least twice a month.
The Glendale News press reports:
"The cemetery has trimmed trees and vegetation at the cemetery in response to that complaint, said David Baum, the attorney representing Goldsman.
“We’ve resolved all of the issues brought in the complaint,” Baum said.
Paul Ayers, one of the attorneys representing families in the class-action lawsuit, said he plans to propose to Baum that a regular, twice-a-month visitation schedule be reestablished at the cemetery.
Earlier this month, attorneys representing the families agreed on a mediator to work on reaching a settlement between the families and the cemetery. Mediation could begin by the summer, said Mary Der-Parseghian, one of the attorneys for the families." Glendale News
