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.
