Ousted by Los Angles financial giant TCW Group, star bond fund manager Jeffrey Gundlach on Monday turned to a firm whose executives had their own bitter breakup with TCW nearly 15 years ago. Gundlach said that he was launching an investment firm called DoubleLine with help from Oaktree Capital Management, a major global investor in bonds and private equity. L.A.-based Oaktree was formed by Howard Marks, Bruce Karsh and a handful of other TCW money managers in 1995, in a move that TCW founder Robert Day at the time branded as "disloyal at the very least."

Candidates competing to be the next Los Angeles County assessor tangled in their first public debate Sunday over tax policy and the best way to reform the office after a scandal that led to the arrest of the current assessor. But they were largely united in their criticism of one candidate who was not present: Jeffrey Prang, a West Hollywood councilman and special assistant in the assessor's office, who is so far the front-runner in fundraising and endorsements. Twelve candidates are running to replace Assessor John Noguez, who is on leave and fighting charges that he had property values reduced for campaign contributors.

The dealer had heard about the two young artists who spent the occasional evening ransacking a hotel room, ripping apart phone books, writing on the walls and getting stoned. Even the artists weren't sure this was art. But Jeffrey Deitch was. He handed them keys to his SoHo gallery and for almost a week they crammed it with 2,000 shredded phone books, and stabbed a broomstick and broken wine bottles in the walls for "Nest," a show that was to remain there for a month. It didn't even survive the raucous opening night party.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Friday ruled that a front-runner in the race for county assessor can't call himself a "deputy assessor" on the ballot. Candidate Omar Haroon, an appraiser in the assessor's office, had filed a court case contending that the occupation listed by rival candidate Jeffrey Prang, a West Hollywood councilman who also works as a public affairs manager for the county agency, was misleading. The assessor's office does not use "deputy assessor" as an official job title.

DoubleLine Capital, formed by star bond fund manager Jeffrey Gundlach after he was fired by L.A. money management firm TCW Group last month, on Tuesday registered to launch its first three mutual funds for individual investors. Gundlach, who is in a vicious legal battle with TCW, hopes to lure investors from the TCW funds he had managed for the last decade, including TCW's retail flagship, Total Return Bond fund. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, DoubleLine applied to launch its own Total Return Bond fund, which like TCW Total Return Bond would invest primarily in mortgage-backed bonds.

The Scene: Tuesday night's premiere of "Jeffrey" at the Westwood Playhouse. The comedy about love in the age of AIDS was a big hit off Broadway last year and has arrived in Los Angeles for an eight-week run. After the performance, guests moved to an outdoor courtyard for dessert and a chance to rehash the show, which received good word-of-mouth from all quarters.

Why does the Museum of Contemporary Art's board of trustees dislike art museums? That's the uncomfortable question hanging in the air as the nation's premier contemporary art museum names Jeffrey Deitch, 57, its fourth director in 30 years. In selecting new leadership, trustees shunned candidates from an international museum roster that has grown vast in recent decades. Instead they reached deep into the New York art market to find a director for the critically admired, financially strapped institution.

There were more witnesses when Jeffrey and Kathryn Elliott renewed their vows in the lobby of a doughnut shop than at their first wedding in Hawaii. This time, instead of family and friends, the ceremony was observed by a ring of delighted tourists snapping pictures on their cellphones while a skinny "voodoo priest" in battered Chuck Taylors and a mask fashioned from a paper bag officiated over their declaration of love. The couple ? she's a technical writer for Microsoft; he's a management consultant ?

"Daaaaaaaddddd!!!!!! I hooked myself!!!!!" The panicked cry echoed off the nearby cliffs and sent me racing into the surf to my 6-year-old son Jeffrey, who had managed to impale himself during his fishing debut. I gently pulled the hook out, a few tears were shed and he rebounded quickly and popped back into the surf trailing his line behind him. This adventure was prompted by "The Kids Book of Fishing and Tackle Box" by writer-illustrator Michael J. Rosen (Workman Publishing: $12.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - In a sentence so light it stunned even his lawyers, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair was sentenced Thursday to a reprimand and no jail time for misusing his authority over a subordinate with whom he had a three-year adulterous affair, ending a tumultuous court-martial that focused national attention on the military's uneven response to sexual misconduct. A military judge ordered Sinclair, 51, to forfeit $20,000 in salary and pay restitution of $4,156 for misusing his government charge card.

Members of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party voted Wednesday to endorse former U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and former state lawmaker Sheila Kuehl in the race for two open seats on the county Board of Supervisors in June's primary election. They also threw their support behind Jeffrey Prang, a West Hollywood City Council member and special assistant in the county assessor's office, in the race for assessor. But controversy arose over which candidate to back in an upcoming special election to fill the Los Angeles Unified School District board seat formerly held by Marguerite Poindexter LaMotte, who died in December.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - His eyes red, his head bowed, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair strode uneasily to a courtroom lectern Wednesday and glanced up at a silver-haired military judge who will sentence him for offenses he admits he committed. Exactly two years had passed since a young Army captain who worked for Sinclair walked into the office of his commander in Afghanistan and revealed that she and the general had carried on an adulterous three-year affair in two war zones - prompting Army prosecutors Wednesday to ask the judge to dismiss Sinclair from the service.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - Two former lovers faced off a few paces apart in a military courtroom Monday, avoiding eye contact as a judge heard conflicting narratives about a tumultuous and illicit affair between two officers of very different rank and stature. Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, wearing jump boots and a dress blue uniform with a white star on each shoulder, pleaded guilty to mistreating his mistress, a subordinate officer under his command. He told a military judge in a halting voice that he deceived the woman, a captain, during their three-year affair, causing her "emotional harm and suffering.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - The sexual assault case against Army Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair was suspended indefinitely Tuesday pending new plea negotiations, one day after a military judge's extraordinary ruling that there was evidence the Army had interfered in previous negotiations. Army Col. James L. Pohl ruled Monday after new evidence came to light. He gave Sinclair's lawyers an opportunity to seek a plea agreement even though Sinclair's previous offer to plead guilty to lesser charges had been rejected.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - Cross examination was scheduled to begin Monday morning for the U.S. Army captain who has accused her former commander of sexually assaulting her. But late Sunday, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair's defense attorneys renewed their claims of Army command interference in his sexual assault prosecution and asked the military judge to reconsider his refusal to drop the charges. In a motion filed in response to 14 pages of emails that military prosecutors provided over the weekend, defense lawyers referred to an email by a senior Army legal officer expressing concern that the accuser lied on the stand at a preliminary hearing in January.

"Four Stories About the Life of a Coffin" is a promising but slight attempt by writers-actors Stephen Ingle and Gary Davis to build four connected scenes into a saga about a coffin--what it contains, who grieves over it, and (most interestingly) who handles it. The premise is so charged, even inspired, that it's a puzzlement how the results are so half-baked. The first scene perfectly encapsulates the problems.

FT. BRAGG, N.C. - The Army improperly interfered with the decision to reject Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair's offer to plead guilty to lesser charges in his sexual assault case, a military judge ruled Monday. Col. James L. Pohl said there was evidence that Army officials had exerted "unlawful command influence" when a three-star general turned down Sinclair's offer before the trial. The judge gave defense attorneys the option of renewing Sinclair's original plea offer or making a different one; in any case, he said, the case must be overseen by a new command authority.
