You are trying to claim jurisdiction over what is entirely private corro
between two people who may just happen to be members of LA - you can not
do that, the first time you try "interfere" you may well find yourself
on the wrong end of the legal system - if someone wanted to get narky. 

not to mention its the kinda thing only a communist dictatorship regime
would come up with.
