Late last month Chino Hills officials filed a temporary restraining order against the homeowners of the residential home at 15250 Woodglen Drive, where the so-called operation is being conducted.
The order prevents operators of Los Angeles Hermas, Inc., Hai Yong Wu and Yi Wang, from occupying the property. The order curtails them from performing any construction work at the house without first obtaining a permit from the city or operating it as a hotel in violation of the city's Municipal Code.
The temporary restraining order was filed with the West Valley Superior Court in Rancho Cucamonga on Dec. 27.
San Bernardino County Superior Court Judge Ben T. Kayashima ordered Wu and Wang to appear in the San Bernardino Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday to show cause on why a preliminary injunction should not be ordered barring them from the Woodglen Drive property pending a trial, according to a city news release.
A public nuisance complaint was filed Dec. 7 with the court alleging the maternity hotel is being operated in the 7,964-square-foot house in violation of several code enforcement laws.
Through a court-ordered inspection in November, city officials discovered that the house has been used to house as many as 30 Chinese women here to have their children on American soil.
