The California Supreme Court appeared dubious Tuesday that a former writers' assistant for the television show "Friends" suffered sexual harassment because of raunchy, sexual comments the show's writers made while producing scripts. During a hearing in Sacramento, two of the state high court's justices observed that Amaani Lyle, 32, was warned before she was hired for "Friends" that she would be subjected to sexually explicit talk in the writers' room.

At about 9:45 p.m. on a Saturday, two nights past the Christmas of 1986, Sam and Joyce Knott were seized by a living nightmare without pity or precedent. Their 20-year-old daughter, Cara, was guiding her white VW Bug along Interstate 15, San Diego's interior freeway, back to her home in El Cajon. She had just spent two days in Escondido playing nursemaid to her boyfriend, Wayne Bautista, who was ill with the flu. Her trip should have taken 40 minutes.

The state Supreme Court today upheld the death sentence of a Los Angeles man for murdering two men and a woman during a drug-related robbery in 1979. The 6-1 decision in the case of Jesse James Andrews, 39, was the first majority opinion by Justice Joyce L. Kennard, appointed to the court by Gov. George Deukmejian in April. The only dissenter, Justice Stanley Mosk, said Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aurelio Munoz should have told jurors that they could consider showing mercy to Andrews.

An appearance before the state Supreme Court caused momentary embarrassment for an embarrassing note for an Orange County prosecutor Wednesday. Deputy Dist. Atty. Thomas J. Borris, arguing in a drug-related death case, at one point addressed the justices as "you guys." "When you say, 'you guys,' to whom are you referring?" Chief Justice Malcolm M. Lucas asked icily. Justice Joyce L. Kennard, the lone woman on the court, asked, "Does that include me?" The prosecutor quickly apologized and the court returned to the issues at hand.

The state Supreme Court ordered a trial judge to conduct a new review of the death sentence imposed on the killer of a Lake Elsinore retiree during a 1983 kidnaping and robbery spree. With newly appointed Justice Joyce L. Kennard participating in her first decision, the court unanimously upheld the murder conviction of Jeffrey Theodore Sheldon, now 26. But it found also that the judge improperly had failed to state his reasons for upholding the jury's verdict of death and that new sentencing proceedings must be held.

Thirteen years ago, Edward Patrick Morgan asked the California Supreme Court for a lawyer to investigate and challenge his 1996 death sentence for a murder in Orange County. The court has yet to find Morgan an attorney. The inability of the state to recruit lawyers for post-conviction challenges, or habeas corpus petitions, has caused a major bottleneck in the state's criminal justice system. Nearly half of those condemned to die in California are awaiting appointment of counsel for these challenges.
