A jury has awarded three veteran Los Angeles police detectives $2.5 million in a gender discrimination and retaliation lawsuit against their supervisors. The verdict, delivered Friday after only a few hours of deliberation, is the latest in a long string of costly lawsuits brought by LAPD officers against fellow cops and supervisors for retaliation, harassment and other workplace abuses. Police Chief Charlie Beck has identified the internal strife — and the Los Angeles Police Department's inability to address it quickly — as one of the most pressing issues facing the agency.

Elizabeth Montgomery, best known for playing Samantha in the television show "Bewitched," will be one of the first set of stars in A.R. Gurney's "Love Letters" opening Oct. 22 at the Old Globe Theatre. In the play the actors read letters on stage that were written over the decades between a man and a woman. This unusual format avoids much memorization and long rehearsals and allows for rotating celebrity casts, which at the Old Globe will change on a weekly basis.
