A federal judge Monday dismissed a lawsuit by O.J. Simpson demanding telephone records that he claims can prove he did not murder ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald L. Goldman. U.S. District Judge Dean D. Pregerson said the former football star's suit should not have been filed in federal court. "I think your lawsuit borders on the frivolous," Pregerson told Simpson attorney Douglas E. McCann, apparently referring to his claim that federal civil rights laws were being violated.

Richard Koshalek has stepped down as president of Art Center College of Design, where he became a lame duck in June after trustees of the elite Pasadena school refused his request for a four-year contract extension. They also suspended fundraising and development for an expansion program Koshalek had championed, including a $50-million Frank Gehry-designed high-tech design center and library. Art Center's board announced Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with Koshalek to let him depart now instead of serving until his contract expired in December 2009.

The Los Angeles Times, one of the last major metropolitan dailies selling for a quarter, announced Tuesday it is doubling its single-copy price in Southern California to 50 cents, effective March 5. "This pricing action is in response to higher newsprint costs and general inflation, and reflects the high quality of The Times' journalism," said Times Publisher and President John Puerner. The Times, acquired last year by Chicago-based Tribune Co., raised the single-copy price to 25 cents in 1979.
