While treasurer of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Leslie V. Porter handled billions of dollars in public money. But he couldn't manage his personal finances. When Porter defaulted on a mortgage on the Beverly Hills condominium in which MTA had invested a quarter of a million dollars, he was fired. Now, almost three years later, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury has awarded Porter $837,040 for wrongful termination, including $200,000 for emotional distress.

As more than 1,000 Los Angeles County Probation Department employees received layoff or demotion notices Friday, leaders of the state Assembly and Senate struck a deal that could prevent the closure of the county's youth probation camp system. The layoffs, ordered by the Board of Supervisors, will take effect Feb. 5 unless Sacramento approves legislation that would funnel at least $17 million to the county so it can continue operating 19 camps for juvenile offenders.
