Stanley R. Malone Jr., a prominent civil rights attorney and Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, has died at 76. Malone, who served on the court for 16 years before his retirement in 1991, died Friday in Los Angeles of kidney failure. He had suffered from diabetes for many years. In the 1950s, as a grievance counsel for the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People, Malone waged legal battles to integrate the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Doris Day probably thought she was finished with litigation involving her former lawyer in 1974, when a Superior Court judge awarded her about $22 million for malpractice. The popular actress might have thought it was over in 1985, when the state Supreme Court rejected the lawyer's appeal. Having a reputation as an optimist, she might have even figured there would be no more real courtroom scenes after March, 1986, when the U. S. Supreme Court refused to review the lower court's judgment.

The new owner of the Cypress Inn Hotel sat sipping a glass of white wine in one of the cool and high-ceilinged ground floor guest rooms. The hotel is by California standards historic, built in 1929 in the Spanish Colonial Revival Style associated with Santa Barbara. It is a quietly elegant oasis in the tourist-teeming town where you can get a bumper sticker that says "Clintville." One change associated with the new management is that the guests' dogs will be welcome.
