A businessman has been convicted in federal court in Los Angeles of laundering $24 million through Santa Barbara-area banks for an organization prosecutors contended was run by a reputed Orange County drug kingpin. U.S. District Judge A. Andrew Hauk said he found Stefan von Metzger's explanation for the source of the money "poppycock" after the 65-year-old Santa Barbara businessman was found guilty on 36 counts. The defense had contended the money in question came from a plastics-manufacturing business owned by von Metzger's brother-in-law in Venezuela and brought into the United States legally to purchase supplies.

If your report ("Federal Suit Over DDT Dumping Is Dismissed," March 23) is accurate, then U.S. District Judge A. Andrew Hauk owes it to the nation, and to California, to excuse himself from any further judgments on cases involving environmental law. He also owes the environmental community an apology for his ill-considered and inflammatory words. Judge Hauk's decision to dismiss the suit is described in the report as "stunning." It is that, and more: outrageous, biased, improper and wrong.
