After only a few hours of testimony, the State Bar on Wednesday dropped all charges against former San Francisco Mayor Joseph L. Alioto, but left his son, Joe M. Alioto, still accused of misconduct in the same 1975 antitrust case. Alioto immediately thanked the Bar court "for a just and fair trial which has resulted inevitably in complete vindication. . . . I was confident I could prove the charges were nothing more than vicious and baseless attacks on my reputation and my practice."
