A lawsuit alleging that City Atty.-elect Mike Feuer manipulated ethics laws to financially benefit his campaign has been thrown out of court. The action had been filed by a supporter of Feuer's rival, Carmen Trutanich. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Richard Rico found meritless the claims by plaintiff Laura Lake that Feuer intentionally delayed paying campaign consultant John Shallman in order to qualify for taxpayer-provided matching funds. The suit, filed in the midst of the campaign, named both Feuer and Shallman as defendants.

Before Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca announced his surprise resignation this week, those campaigning to replace him mostly argued that the 15-year incumbent needed to go so leadership could be returned to the beleaguered department. When former Undersheriff Paul Tanaka announced his candidacy atop a helicopter landing pad, he said county residents were "long overdue for a new direction from their sheriff. " The prior day, former Cmdr. Bob Olmsted announced his bid, saying he was "running for sheriff to restore integrity.

The stunning upset of Rep. Robert K. Dornan by Democrat Loretta Sanchez not only thrust the congresswoman-elect into the national limelight, it raised the political fortunes of her 32-year-old campaign manager, John Shallman. A small, wiry man with a red vandyke beard and a hereditary passion for politics, Shallman was a business strategist who also dabbled as a political consultant when he hired on to the Sanchez team in early August.

The expensive and hard-fought race for Los Angeles mayor left former candidate Wendy Greuel with more than $518,000 in outstanding campaign debts, according to fundraising numbers turned in this week. The report, which covers the fundraising period that ended June 30, showed the former city controller spent considerably more than she took in during the campaign's final days. She lost to Eric Garcetti, who took office as mayor July 1. The debt could complicate any effort by Greuel to launch another bid for public office.

Citing pending litigation, Los Angeles city attorney candidate Mike Feuer on Tuesday said he won't release a copy of his unusual “win-bonus” contract with campaign consultant John Shallman. The Times had requested copies of both the original contract and modifications Feuer said he made after coming in first in the four-way primary last month. He has since been sued by a supporter of incumbent City Atty. Carmen Trutanich over the contract. “Following discussions with our counsel, given the pending litigation, we aren't releasing the contracts at this time,” Dave Jacobson, Feuer campaign spokesman, said in an email.

At an otherwise tame candidates' forum, City Atty. Carmen Trutanich again pounded his rival, Mike Feuer, for an unusual campaign contract that Trutanich said amounted to an unlawful manipulation of city election laws. "You have to ask yourself why anyone would lie to get $300,000 in matching funds," Trutanich thundered while waving a sheaf of documents that the former prosecutor said proves his case. "He's lying to you now and he will continue to lie if you elect him. " Feuer, a former state Assemblyman and City Council member, disputed Trutanich's assertion, assuring an Encino audience late Wednesday that the contract had passed scrutiny with the city's Ethics Commission.

Campaign operatives for Los Angeles City Atty. Carmen Trutanich on Friday lodged a complaint against his most prominent challenger in next week's election, accusing former lawmaker Mike Feuer and his political consultant of flouting city campaign finance disclosure laws. The complaint, filed with the City Ethics Commission by Trutanich chief strategist Rick Taylor and campaign spokesman John Schwada, alleges that Feuer and consultant John Shallman have arranged to waive or postpone Shallman's fees, which the Trutanich campaign said amounts to an illegal "in-kind donation" that greatly exceeds the city's limits on individuals' contributions.
