Question: Our association's attorney shows up unannounced and regularly schmoozes on our property with, for example, the new manager, an employee of the association. Uninvited, the attorney attends board meetings, saying, "There's no charge" -- a situation approved by the board president. This attorney creates disputes where none exist and then offers to correct them. Is the attorney trespassing on our common property? Does the board breach its fiduciary duty by allowing him, of his own accord, to conduct business with our employees?

Question: I have been on my homeowners association board for two years. All communication between the board and the attorney goes through the association's manager before distribution to the board. I just discovered the manager has been withholding communications the attorney has written to the board. I've also found instances where the manager regularly emails the association attorney stating, "The board wants" and "The board would like you to," when in fact the board never discussed such matters.

After months of speculation about whom President Obama will appoint as the new U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, there is growing consensus as to the most likely nominee: Andre Birotte Jr., the Los Angeles Police Department's inspector general.

But people who have worked closely with Birotte have been interviewed by FBI agents conducting background checks on the 43-year-old attorney, sources said.
