A Los Angeles resident has sued the city to block it from implementing a new law that would roll back zoning rules for projects that have at least a few units of affordable housing. Sandy Hubbard filed a lawsuit last week arguing that the City Council should have completed an environmental review of the law before approving it last month. The lawsuit's arguments closely mirrored those made by Planning Commission President Jane Ellison Usher in an e-mail sent last month to neighborhood activists saying the law was vulnerable to legal challenge.

Mayor Tom Bradley announced a major shake-up Tuesday in the commissions that help shape Los Angeles city policy, naming 21 newcomers to head the commissions, including the spouses of two top aides. Despite the personal relationship of two appointees to his aides, the mayor said the appointments reflected a broad cross-section of the city's population. One appointee is Harry Usher, the No. 2 man in the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, who was named to the Cultural Affairs panel.

With the March 3 election less than three weeks away, the race for Los Angeles city attorney is taking a considerably sharper tone. A day after several city officials expressed their dislike of a campaign mailer sent by City Councilman Jack Weiss, one of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's most outspoken appointees threw her support Wednesday behind Weiss' opponent in the city attorney campaign, Harbor City lawyer Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich. Former Planning Commission President Jane Ellison Usher, who had plenty to say on development issues as a city commissioner, sent out an invitation to a Feb. 18 campaign fundraiser for Trutanich in Hancock Park.

One of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's most outspoken appointees resigned Thursday from her position as president of the powerful citywide Planning Commission. Attorney Jane Ellison Usher led the volunteer commission as it took stands that irritated some of the city's elected officials, opposing a plan for new digital billboards along the 10 Freeway and rejecting a planned 242-room hotel in Koreatown. Both votes were reversed by the City Council.

After wrangling for years over control of local mass-transit services, the county's two big public transportation agencies on Wednesday amicably adopted a plan by Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley to start a state-mandated merger. At stake is the future of a vital urban service, transportation, as well as control of the $184 billion committed to improve that service over the next 30 years.

A developer whose plan to build luxury homes in a wooded ravine in Studio City brought out patrols of neighborhood activists and officials determined to stop him expressed frustration Tuesday that his opponents' outburst of 11th-hour protests ignored his expensive, 12-year effort to meet city regulations and environmental objections.

Re "The monstrosity next door," Opinion, Feb. 17 I Googled the name Todd Gish, only to learn that he might be either a recent PhD graduate or a Midwestern angler of note. I'd rather have heard from the fisherman, whose skills of infinite patience might have teased out these truths about the explosive size of Los Angeles houses: Our municipal code contains no meaningful limits on the size of single-family homes -- oversized homes have not been of historical concern; the proposed city rules are deliberately more generous than similar regulations already adopted by our neighboring cities; our smallest 5,000-square-foot residential lot will be permitted to build a 3,400-square-foot home and garage, regarded everywhere as both modern and sizable (larger lots will be able to build larger homes)
