Boeing Co.'s sprawling aircraft assembly plant in Long Beach is in the running to build the aerospace giant's forthcoming 777X jetliner after a machinists union in Washington state rejected a deal that would have ensured the work would stay in the Seattle area. Once considered a long shot, Long Beach is one of several cities under active consideration by Boeing after the International Assn. of Machinists and Aerospace Workers voted down a tentative labor agreement by a 2-to-1 margin late Wednesday.

A judge Friday found that eight black teenagers beat three white women in Long Beach out of racial hatred, ending a divisive trial that was muddled by conflicting testimony and accusations of witness intimidation.
