STUDIO CITY : Legal Agreement Ends Party Days at Rented Mansion

The party’s over at a Studio City mansion where advertised bashes attended by as many as 1,000 revelers drove neighbors to distraction.

A lawyer for the owner and a manager of the property Thursday agreed to a court order that will ban the illegal sale of alcohol, advertising and parties after 10 p.m. or with more than 25 people, according to Deputy City Atty. Deborah Sanchez.

Tenant Jerry Bolduc, who staged many of the parties, said he had not read the agreement. But he said he understood that it merely required that neighbors be notified in advance of any bash.

However, Sanchez said the owner must enforce the new restrictions and begin eviction proceedings immediately if the tenants violate the deal. She said she expects a judge to sign a permanent injunction Oct. 17, resolving a lawsuit filed by her office against the mansion’s owner, manager and tenants.

The agreement was signed by property manager Steven Powers and an attorney representing owner Paul Campbell, Sanchez said.

Neighbors had begun complaining to police as early as 1990 about the mansion on the 3400 block of Wrightwood Drive. City prosecutors filed the lawsuit in August after police raids, parking citations and undercover efforts proved ineffective.
