David F. Levi seems an unlikely crime-buster. Soft-spoken and bespectacled, the Sacramento-based U.S. attorney for the eastern district of California looks to be more scholar than cop. But this son of a college president--and a U.S. attorney general--has engineered a sweeping 3 1/2-year investigation of political corruption that has rocked the state Capitol and led to the indictments of Sen. Joseph B. Montoya (D-Whittier) and a former top aide, plus a local sheriff and his former chief deputy.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's plan to cut rates that MediCal pays doctors was dealt another setback Thursday. U.S. District Judge David F.

Levi had ruled that cutting the provider rates by 5% was illegal because the state could not prove that the effect on access to care for the poor would be minimal. The administration has since proposed cutting those rates by another 10%, hoping that the ruling will be overturned on appeal.

The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians that hopes to open California's first urban casino isn't legitimately a tribe, card rooms that oppose the competition argued in court papers Friday. The band plans to convert a San Pablo card room into a Las Vegas-style casino across the bay from San Francisco as early as Dec. 7, when the federal government is scheduled to take the card room property into trust for the tribe.

Marvin Levin, a Sacramento developer who alerted the FBI to corruption in the California Legislature in the 1980s and played a pivotal role in the ensuing sting operation, has died. He was 76. Levin, who had been in declining health for a decade, died Nov. 19 at his home in Tamarac, Fla., said his wife, Janet. For three years, Levin had been an invaluable informant in the sting, which ended in 1988 when 30 investigators raided the Capitol offices of four legislators and two legislative aides.
