Las Vegas judge: An article in Section A on Dec. 11 about the dismissal of a complaint against U.S. District Judge James C. Mahan of Las Vegas should have made clear that there were a number of other allegations the court did not address. The Judicial Council of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals special investigating committee addressed "only allegations related to the judge's conduct while a United States District Judge." The court launched its investigation of Mahan after The Times reported that he had awarded more than $4.8 million in judgments and fees apparently without disclosing personal, political and business ties to those who benefited.

The two branches of botany use the same language but their dialects are so different they rarely translate works to compare notes. But at Texas Tech's Plant Stress and Water Conservation Lab, scientists from a number of disciplines have learned to speak a common language: drought. "Most enzymologists talk only with enzymologists," said James Mahan, a plant physiologist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
