A $5.8-million verdict against a Pomona labor union local for violent picketing has become a central issue in a bitter contest between incumbent Superior Court Judge Burton Bach and his challenger, Deputy Dist. Atty. Lawrence Mason, in a Los Angeles County judicial election next month. Organized labor, unhappy at the jury verdict upheld by Bach last year against Local 1458 of the United Food and Commercial Workers, is strongly supporting Mason.

I read with great interest your editorial "When Should a Cop Shoot?" (Feb. 18). The editorial noted that there was a major difference between New York and Los Angeles police officers in that Los Angeles police officers were twice as likely to use deadly force as New York police officers. As a person who was a practicing attorney in both New York City and Los Angeles County, the reason for such disparity is easy to understand. In New York City, the minority groups have political clout; here in Los Angeles they do not. And most of the deadly force used by police in Los Angeles is in the minority communities.

In his letter (Oct. 15), Kevin Steinfeld suggested that "Lawyers have found too many loopholes in today's legal system to help the guilty and hurt the innocent." This gratuitous insult to the members of the legal profession cannot go unanswered. What Steinfeld doesn't realize is that what he considers loopholes are actually rights found in an ancient document called the United States Constitution. This is the same document that prevents government agents from breaking into our homes in the middle of the night and taking us away (a trick the Gestapo perfected in Nazi Germany)

Re "A Shortage of Skilled Workers," Opinion, Nov. 2: Joel Kotkin only tells some of the factors that have caused the labor shortage. What about the barrage of downsizing of recent years that forced many experienced and skilled people into early retirement? And what about the dismissal of these higher-paid, skilled workers in favor of lower-paid, younger workers. With no orderly transitioning of skills from the older workers to the younger ones, the end result is that it'll cost the corporation more at the end. The California Supreme Court decision on the age discrimination case (Oct.

A Covina high school student who complained that she was dismissed as the school's drum major because she did not sell enough candy in a fund-raising drive lost a bid for reinstatement Tuesday. Pomona Superior Court Judge Burton Bach ruled that Lisa Ortiz's request for an injunction against the Covina-Valley Unified School District was moot because the band won't be needing a drum major for the rest of the school year.
