If there has been a recurring theme about the late Los Angeles City Councilman Gilbert W. Lindsay during the Superior Court trial over the proceeds of his estate, it is the veteran politician's insistence on living life his way.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Wednesday dismissed fraud and conspiracy allegations in a lawsuit against Juanda Chauncie, but let stand a claim that she may have used undue influence to gain the late Los Angeles City Councilman Gilbert Lindsay's money and property. Judge F.

The trial of Juanda Chauncie, accused in a lawsuit of bilking the late Gilbert Lindsay out of money and property, took on aspects of a soap opera Tuesday when a 46-year-old exterminator testified that he lived with her about a year before the longtime Los Angeles city councilman's death. Frank Marshall, owner of a pest control business based in Inglewood, testified that he even became engaged to Chauncie, 40, who has maintained that she was engaged only to Lindsay.

A will that Los Angeles City Councilman Gilbert Lindsay signed 17 months before he died shows that he intended his property to go to his relatives rather than to a former girlfriend who now controls several of his properties, according to a lawyer for Lindsay's estate. The will also shows that Lindsay thought he was still the owner of the property at the time of the signing and that he did not want the girlfriend, Juanda Chauncie, 39, to benefit from his estate, said Dion-Cherie Raymond.

The former girlfriend of Gilbert Lindsay is a "gold digger" who played the late councilman "like a piano," an attorney for Lindsay's stepson said Friday.

The stepson of Los Angeles City Councilman Gilbert Lindsay asserted in a lawsuit Monday that the aging councilman is senile and lacked the mental capacity to comprehend that his girlfriend deceived him over the last two years, systematically stripping him of nearly all of his property. Lindsay, 90, placed "great trust and confidence" in Juanda Chauncie, 39, his "girlfriend, lover, dependent and confidante," the lawsuit claimed.
