Cable's restaurant in woodland hills is a comfortable neighborhood coffee shop with a loyal clientele, the type of place where the regulars eat four or five times a week and the waitresses call you "Honey." Patrons sit at green vinyl booths under faux wood beams that give the restaurant a kitschy ambience. The $7.95 fried chicken special is the signature dish on the multi-page menu. On a recent morning, the patrons included a man with an oxygen tank.

Jarek Molski certainly must be annoying to businesses as his intent seems to be to make money rather than make it easier for the disabled ("Rolling Thunder," by Matthew Heller, Oct. 2). However, I can understand his anger. I just spent the last three years pushing my husband around in a wheelchair, and I noticed that there are far too many businesses that don't comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. Can those businesses understand how degrading it is to a man or woman who can't use the bathroom when they absolutely have to?

Whether Jarek Molski is a crusader for the disabled or an extortionist who abused the law for personal gain, the vexatious litigant has filed his last lawsuit. The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to hear the case of Molski vs. Evergreen Dynasty Corp., owner of a Chinese restaurant in Solvang, Calif., in a legal Waterloo for the 38-year-old Woodland Hills man. Molski filed more than 400 suits under the Americans With Disabilities Act before a federal judge barred him from future litigation.

U.S. District Judge Edward Rafeedie, whose decisions in several high-profile trials -- including the 1990 case of a Mexican doctor accused of torturing a U.S. drug enforcement agent -- earned him a reputation as a no-nonsense jurist with an independent streak, died of cancer Tuesday at his home in Malibu. He was 79.

Most people never file a single suit in federal court. Jarek Molski of Woodland Hills has filed 400. Now, a federal judge, accusing Molski of a "scheme of systematic extortion," wants to shut him down.

Lingering fog shrouds the Venice boardwalk midday as Thomas Mundy rolls past ice cream vendors, T-shirt shacks and falafel stands, a discerning eye trained on the warrens of beach-themed kitsch and quick nibbles. He's not looking for leather thong pendants or Jamaican trinkets in memory of Bob Marley, or to commune with the manic crowd of in-line skaters and street artists.
