A state appellate court in Los Angeles reinstated a lawsuit Friday by California cities and counties that seeks to force eight paint manufacturers to clean up lead paint used in low-income housing and government buildings. The reinstatement follows a victory at trial last week by the state of Rhode Island, which accused some of the same manufacturers of helping to create a significant public health crisis by making and selling lead-based paint.

Small investors in Charles H. Keating Jr.'s company won a record courtroom verdict 14 months ago, but they have since recovered barely half of the money they lost after his Lincoln Savings & Loan collapsed. Two months ago, a group of mostly elderly bondholders meeting in Sherman Oaks were so frustrated that they sent a scroll with 300 signatures to Joseph W. Cotchett Jr., their chief trial lawyer, asking when they might receive more of the $286 million that investors lost altogether.

Legislative Democrats today will sue federal energy regulators, charging that their inaction threatens elderly people in nursing homes, children in day care centers, law enforcement and its ability to fight crime, and the state's drinking water supplies. Rather than focus on record wholesale energy costs, the lawsuit takes a new tack, homing in on the threat to health and safety posed by California's energy crisis and the blackouts likely this summer.

For the city of San Jose, four years of waiting had been long enough. The city filed an antitrust lawsuit against Major League Baseball on Tuesday, not necessarily to win in court but to gain leverage for a settlement in which the Oakland Athletics could move to San Jose. "All we're looking for is for the A's to come to downtown San Jose," said Joe Cotchett , the attorney representing San Jose. The suit laid bare the hostility between the city of San Jose and the San Francisco Giants, the team that has insisted it would neither surrender nor sell its right to keep the A's out of San Jose.

SAN FRANCISCO — This is a story of two politicians who share private horrors, a special bond and, now, a rare honor. Paul N. "Pete" McCloskey, the former eight-term Bay Area congressman, led six bayonet charges as the head of his platoon while in Korea. The holder of two Purple Hearts, a Silver Star and the Navy Cross, he returned home to dedicate his public life to fighting for peace and the environment. Now 84, with a square face and shock of white hair, McCloskey prefers not to recount the battles that twice left him wounded, telling a documentarian not long ago that recounting his experience would be "unseemly" braggadocio.

Saddened residents of this quaint seaside city 28 miles south of San Francisco on Thursday strolled by the blackened carcass of the country store and downtown landmark that was destroyed by fire the night before. By lunch, the charred debris left by the six-alarm blaze at Cunha's Country Store was still smoking. And down the street, at Original Johnny's, a down-home diner popular with local residents, plans to rebuild the structure in record time were already underway.

These days, when attorney Michael A. Clark talks, people listen. A lot of people. For eight days, the one-time J.

Jerry Brown was livid. After courting a number of police unions in his bid for governor, the Democratic nominee and California attorney general had just learned that he had lost an endorsement to his Republican rival, Meg Whitman, and feared others would follow. Fuming as he huddled with a small group of advisors in his Oakland headquarters, Brown ordered an aide to call another police union. Then Anne Gust, Brown's wife and political confidant, stepped in. "No, no, no, no," she said sharply.

How do they hate thee, oh Rams? Let the Raiders count the ways: (1) You know that 40 the Rams wear on their shoulders, stressing the continuity of 40 years in Southern California? The Raiders think that's funny. The Raiders think the Rams are Anaheim's team and maybe what they should have on their shoulders is a 6, for the number of years they've been in Orange County. Said Rod Martin: "They're the Anaheim Rams. We're the L.A. Raiders. Even though they're called the L.A.
