Westlake Village City Council
Claim denied: The council denied $1.35 million in combined claims from Lance Winslow and his wife and business partner. Leslie Nims, owners of The Car Wash Guys and The Car Wash Gals, and an employee, Yojana Maria Nuno-Lopez.
Nims and Nuno-Lopez each sought $550,000, claiming they were harmed from a city-ordered false arrest July 30 for washing cars in a business parking lot, which city officials say an ordinance prohibits. The city later dropped its prosecution of the women.
Winslow claims that since the arrest of his wife and Nuno-Lopez, the mobile car wash companies have lost business in the city of Westlake Village. He sought $255,000 from the city.
