California Supreme Court Justice Edward A. Panelli, his eyes filled with tears, announced Wednesday that he will retire from the high court Jan. 31, a move that gives Gov. Pete Wilson a politically volatile vacancy to fill in an election year. "After eight years," said Panelli, 61, dressed in his long black judicial robes, "some of this stuff starts to lose some of its attractiveness and appeal."

The public information officer for the state Supreme Court, Lynn Holton, said Lucas had telephoned staff members Thursday morning, briefly describing his condition and saying he would likely be released within three or four days. Holton reiterated that the surgery "was not an emergency," but said no further information will be released.

In response to "Makers of Hazardous Products Get Legal Shield," Part A, May 31: Either the California Supreme Court justices or the attorney for the plaintiff in this case did not do their homework, because it has been known since at least the late 1920s--by manufacturers and their medical consultants--that asbestos can cause pulmonary fibrosis and cancer. This was common knowledge among clinicians when I was an intern in 1952. Asbestos has been on trial in hundreds of courtrooms for over 20 years and the statement by California Supreme Court Justice Edward A. Panelli that "how can one warn of something that is unknowable" is either disingenuous or reflects appalling judicial ignorance.
