A federal judge ruled Friday that Adlai Stevenson cannot run for governor as an independent, leaving Stevenson with the much more difficult task of launching a third-party bid. U.S. District Judge James B. Parsons upheld the constitutionality of a state law requiring that independent candidacies be filed by last December, which Stevenson did not do.

One morning in May 2008, an eighth-grader walked into Janice Hart's office at a Beverly Hills school crying. She was upset and humiliated and couldn't possibly go to class, the girl told the counselor. The night before, a classmate had posted a video on YouTube with a group of other eighth-graders bad-mouthing her, calling her "spoiled," a "brat" and a "slut." Text and instant messages had been flying since. Half the class must have seen it by now, she told Hart. Hart took the problem to the vice principal and principal, who took it to a district administrator, who asked the district's lawyers what they could do about it. In the end, citing "cyber-bullying" concerns, school officials suspended the girl who posted the video for two days.

Republican Gov. James Thompson won a fourth term after a vitriolic rematch of his 1982 race against Democrat Adlai Stevenson III, who ran on a third-party ticket to dissociate himself from candidates backed by Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. Thompson received 57% of the vote to Stevenson's 43%. Stevenson's uphill struggle began with the March primary when two LaRouche followers, in stunning upsets, won spots on the Democratic ticket.
