The Glendale chapter of the National Charity League has filed a lawsuit against the be.group in an effort to stop the sale of Twelve Oaks Lodge in La Crescenta, according to the Glendale-News Press.
The lawsuit claims the be.group, which operates the facility, has not complied with Twelve Oaks' underlying charitable trust. The be.group plans to sell it and force its 50 residents to move out because it says it cannot afford to continue to operate it.
The sale has caused outrage among many local residents and prompted the Glendale chapter of the National Charity League—which used to operate the facility—to claim that the sale violates the trust's original intent because the facility was handed over to the be.group for no money, which would make profiting on the sale in violation of the trust.
It has sought numerous ways to halt the sale, including asking for the California attorney general's help in investigating the issue.
