Patricia Hitchcock, executive director of the Constitutional Rights Foundation of Orange County, admits that her nonprofit organization is among the best kept secrets around. "Most people think that our in-school programs, the business conferences and our mock trial are put on by the school district," Hitchcock said. "Most people don't even know we exist."

Kimberly Knill, a local attorney with her own private practice, will help handle the appeals case for Louis and Juditha Brown in their fight for custody of O.J. Simpson's children. Knill said she learned that the Browns needed an appellate attorney through a newspaper article and, like the attorneys who represented the Browns during the custody trial, does not propose to charge the Browns for her work. "I feel for the Browns," said Knill, 33.

A Tustin couple and a surrogate mother who engaged in a landmark custody battle over a surrogate child have agreed to a legal truce. Under a tentative settlement agreement, Mark and Crispina Calvert have agreed to drop their lawsuit against Anna Johnson if she withdraws a cross-complaint. The Calverts signed a $10,000 contract with the Garden Grove woman in 1990 to carry a child for them. During her pregnancy, however, Johnson told the Calverts she wanted to keep the child.

Although O.J. Simpson's lawyer told reporters Monday that Simpson has reached a settlement allowing him to keep custody of his two young children, the children's maternal grandfather said Monday that no agreement has been finalized. Lou and Juditha Brown have been fighting for custody of their slain daughter's children since 1995, when Simpson was acquitted on charges of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman. Both were stabbed to death outside her Brentwood home.

The effort to recall a judge who awarded O. J. Simpson custody of his children has failed. Organizers gathering signatures for the recall of Orange County Superior Court Judge Nancy Wieben Stock fell "just short" of the minimum needed by Wednesday to put the issue on the ballot, said organizer Tammy Bruce. The Los Angeles-based Women's Progressive Alliance had initiated the recall effort in April after Stock awarded custody to Simpson, who had been acquitted of murdering their mother.

The trial to determine who will have custody of O.J. Simpson's children ended Wednesday, leaving the decision in the hands of Orange County Superior Court Judge Nancy Wieben Stock. Both the football Hall of Famer and his former in-laws emerged from the Betty Lou Lamoreaux Justice Center just before 5 p.m. smiling and appearing relieved that the four-week, closed-door proceedings were over.

Re "Controversial Custody Cases Make Judge a Recall Target," Feb. 18: My opinion on whether Orange County Superior Court Judge Nancy Wieben Stock was right or wrong is not relevant. What is relevant is that her detractors are not "politicizing" her office, it has always been a political office. Judi A. Curtin of the Orange County Bar Assn. says that for a jurist to be recalled "just because a particular groups thinks one of their decisions is wrong" is wrong in itself. That particular group is the same group that elected the jurist.

A lawyer for O.J. Simpson's former in-laws told an appeals court Friday that the Orange County judge who granted Simpson custody of his two younger children should have considered civil evidence against the football Hall-of-Famer. Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, but a civil jury later found him responsible for the deaths of his ex-wife and her friend.
