The commission drafting plans for San Fernando Valley secession set a schedule Wednesday for finishing its work in time to get the proposal on the November 2002 ballot, but left out the step that poses the biggest threat to a referendum: a court fight. City Hall lawyers already have sketched the outlines of a potential legal assault on the move to break apart Los Angeles.

A day after laying out their vision of a new city in the San Fernando Valley, activists complained Wednesday that Los Angeles officials are obstructing the state-mandated fiscal study of the proposed breakup. The secession group Valley VOTE also hammered the Los Angeles City Council for adopting an elaborate system Wednesday to screen each request for city data needed for the study. John M. Walker, a Valley VOTE board member, said it would "take forever" to get information.

Despite campaign finance reports that show him trailing several rivals in a jampacked race, Tom Hayden remained a popular target Saturday at a forum for 5th City Council District candidates. The sharpest attacks on the former state senator came from businessman Steve Saltzman, who opened his remarks with a sarcastic jab at Hayden's recent move into the district. He went on to criticize Hayden's rejection of matching public funds, a complaint echoed by other candidates in the 11-way race.

Leaders of the San Fernando Valley secession movement proposed a litmus test Monday to pin down mayoral candidates on the politically charged issue of breaking apart Los Angeles. The move was the first foray into the mayoral race by the Valley VOTE secession group. It came 10 days after a union of city workers induced at least one mayoral contender to sign a pledge to fight any efforts to split up the city.

The commission studying plans for San Fernando Valley and Harbor area secession from Los Angeles voted Wednesday to decide by March 2002 whether to put the proposals before voters. The Local Agency Formation Commission for Los Angeles County set the deadline in response to accusations by its staff that City Hall was trying to delay the secession study by withholding data on municipal operations.
