Chief Justice Malcolm M. Lucas, leading pleas by leaders of the legal profession for action on the drug problem, called Sunday for more courts and judges to handle a soaring increase in drug-related cases that threatens to clog the California judicial system.

Geoffrey was undeterred.

It was, perhaps, the only way that this lawsuit could have ended. After a 6 1/2-year legal free-for-all, the Marciano brothers, creators of Guess jeans, won back full control Wednesday of that garment industry gold mine from their archenemies, the Nakash brothers, founders of Jordache.
