Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno and other federal officials have immunity from an excessive force lawsuit filed by the Miami relatives of young Cuban refugee Elian Gonzalez, the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled. Armed federal agents removed Elian, then 6, from the family's home before dawn on April 22, 2000, five months after he was rescued from the Atlantic Ocean. His mother and others died trying to reach Florida by boat. He has since been returned to Cuba.

On Tuesday, a full week after Florida's chaos-plagued election and onset of a prolonged ballot count, Janet Reno conceded defeat, and drove off into the political twilight. From now on, Reno told glum-faced supporters, she is a "private citizen." It almost certainly was a career-ending move for the former U.S.

Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno revved up her campaign supporters at a trendy South Beach club. "Janet Reno's Dance Party" mimicked the famous "Saturday Night Live" skit on NBC that parodied her. Reno, a Democrat, often mentions the skit, and supporters say it shows she is down to earth. Reno is seeking to unseat Republican Gov. Jeb Bush. Polls show her trailing him by double digits. "Most candidates have to hustle to raise money," Bush campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

Janet Reno asked for a statewide recount Friday of every vote in Florida's botched primary and was promptly turned down by the state election board. Florida's secretary of state, however, said counties could continue to look for votes not tallied that could erase Bill McBride's lead in the Democratic race for governor.

With 100% of the ballots finally tallied in Florida's messy Democratic primary, neophyte politician Bill McBride claimed victory Thursday after unofficial returns showed him defeating Janet Reno by more than 8,000 votes for the right to challenge Gov. Jeb Bush in November. But the state's top election official has not yet formally proclaimed McBride the winner, and Reno, the former U.S. attorney general, has not conceded defeat.

After enduring yet another election marred by technical and human foul-ups, Floridians waited in political limbo Wednesday to know whether upstart candidate Bill McBride had succeeded in knocking off Democratic Party superstar Janet Reno in the gubernatorial primary. With returns in from 97% of the precincts across the state, McBride, a Tampa lawyer who has never held elective office, was leading Reno, the former U.S. attorney general, by 19,500 votes out of more than 1 million cast.

With polls showing her main Democratic challenger gaining on her, former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno jumped in her red pickup truck and took to the road again. Reprising the late February tour she used to reintroduce herself to voters, Reno kicked off an 11-day statewide journey in her Ford Ranger as partisan surveys showed her lead in the governor's race over Bill McBride shrinking. Recent polls indicate a gap of only 5 to 6 percentage points between McBride and Reno. The primary is Sept. 10.

Former U.S. Atty. Gen. Janet Reno, whose campaign to unseat Jeb Bush as Florida governor has included a dance party at a glitzy nightclub, has booked her friend Elton John to sing at a fund-raising concert, campaign officials said. The concert is scheduled for Sept. 18--eight days after the Florida primary in which Reno is seeking the Democratic nomination. If she wins, she will run against the Republican Bush, younger brother of President Bush, in the November general election.

Re David Lewis' March 12 letter: It is certainly an injustice that women have been excluded from positions of power for most of world history. However, there is no reason to believe that when women do in fact get the opportunity to wield power, they do so with any less egoism or aggression than do men. The myth of female pacifism is unfounded: Margaret Thatcher, Janet Reno and Condoleezza Rice come to mind as examples to the contrary. Bob Cheslow Los Angeles
