Superior Court Judge Judith M. Ryan, frustrated by the demands of balancing both a family and a rigorous court schedule, has decided to leave the bench to take on two private-sector positions that she expects to give her greater scheduling flexibility. An 8-year veteran of the county bench who was appointed by former Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., Ryan plans to leave her position on the Superior Court's expedited trial panel at the end of May. She plans to become a member of Judicial Arbitration & Mediation Services, a private firm that provides services for resolving disputes out of court, as well as a consultant to Corbett & Steelman, an Irvine law firm in which her brother is a partner.

It comes as no surprise that the Los Angeles Times has once again come to the aid of Judith Ryan ("Time to Forgive and Forget, Not Whine," editorial, Jan. 10). The ethics reprimand Ryan received from the Orange County Republican Party, contrary to The Times' superficial analysis, was well-deserved. The Times asks me to "drop" 12 ethics complaints. Please, let's set the record straight. Even a cursory look at the facts fortifies the Republican ethics panel's rulings. Ryan was recruited by consultant Eileen Padberg and by every radical-left feminist organization (all Democrats)

The Orange County Republican Party's ethics committee announced Monday that Judith Ryan's primary campaign last spring against Rep. Robert K. Dornan was guilty of "character defamation, inaccuracies and distortions." The committee voted to formally "condemn" Ryan's campaign following a complaint last month from Dornan (R-Garden Grove) that listed 12 allegations of improper election tactics by his opponent.

It's hard to believe that the Orange County Republican Party's ethics committee went along with Rep. Robert K. Dornan's recent request to condemn his opponent in last spring's GOP primary election. The Garden Grove Republican's list of 12 complaints against Judith M. Ryan, who lost to Dornan, sounded more like a whine from someone annoyed at being challenged than a legitimate list of wrongdoings.

According to your article "Taking a Step Off the Platform" (April 2), WISH List is an organization of pro-choice Republican women which gives financial support to other pro-choice Republican women who are running for Congress. Judith Ryan, a pro-choice Republican woman, is challenging incumbent Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove), who is virulently anti-choice. Suddenly, WISH List claims to be "too new" to make an endorsement in that race, and says that its current policy is "not to endorse challengers over incumbents in a primary race."

Judith Ryan deserves celebrity status. She's the first candidate who has dared to challenge Bob Dornan in six terms in a row. Did I get that right? Six uncontested elections--and on the seventh he gripes? Is that arrogance or what? Could it be, like Dornan says, that Judith Ryan can "hurt the President of the United States"? Wow! That's a power woman! And heaven forbid that Dornan should have to cut short his junketing around after Bush and come home to Orange County and talk to us. What a bother!

I went ballistic after reading your article on Dornan, and I hope everyone else who read it did too. To have an elected official act to muzzle support for an opponent through threats and intimidation sounds like a schoolyard bully. If Dornan is truly representing his constituents, he has nothing to fear in a reelection campaign. I immediately wrote a check to his opponent Judith Ryan's campaign and suggest that any other voter as repulsed as I do the same. SUSAN SKINNER Newport Beach

Maybe the Los Angeles Times should have titled its Orange County endorsements (May 24) "Orange County Can And Must Have More Liberal Representation." In calling for change, The Times makes a thinly veiled effort to call for better representation, when in actuality it is just out to promote its liberal views. The last thing we in Orange County need is a Los Angeles newspaper playing rooting section for local liberals. It shows how far out of touch The Times is with Orange County values when (editors)

I am currently an appointed member of the Orange County Republican Central Committee, and I was appointed by a man. I am now a newly elected member of this committee. The composition is 19 men and 23 women. We cannot expect preferential treatment on one hand and then be expected to be treated as equals when it serves our purpose. Candidates who run for office must expect either to win or lose on the merits of their own campaigns. Someone told me recently that those who won by small margins ran an excellent campaign.

In a last-minute push to raise cash, a top aide to Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) pleaded with Washington lobbyists for campaign contributions to fend off an unexpectedly tough primary challenge. In telephone calls made last week, the aide reportedly told lobbyists who represent Orange County interests that a private poll shows Dornan's Tuesday primary opponent, former Orange County Superior Court Judge Judith A. Ryan, trailing by only 5 percentage points.

To a roomful of rowdy cheers and applause, Patricia Ireland, the controversial president of the National Organization for Women, on Friday night implored women to join "a quiet revolution in Orange County" by electing women into office and ousting conservative males. On the swing through California to kick off NOW's Elect Women for a Change national movement, Ireland made her first visit to Orange County to campaign for former Superior Court Judge Judith M.
