An Orange County Superior Court judge Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit filed by a postal worker who contended that her union left her unprotected when co-worker Mark Richard Hilbun went on a deadly rampage at the Dana Point post office in 1993. Judge Jack K. Mandel ruled that the suit filed by Kim Springer, who police said was stalked by Hilbun for a year, should instead be filed in federal court because it involved federal employees, said Springer's lawyer, Jack M. Earley.

A former letter carrier accused of killing his mother and a former co-worker during a two-day rampage last year faces a possible death sentence, his attorney said Thursday. Orange County prosecutors decided to seek the death penalty for Mark Richard Hilbun, 40, despite defense concerns about Hilbun's history of mental problems, including depression and manic-depressive behavior, said Deputy Public Defender Denise Gragg. Gragg said the defense will focus on Hilbun's mental state.

"He's very ill," said Deputy Public Defender David Biggs, who is representing the 39-year-old fired postal worker charged with killing his mother and a former colleague during a rampage in May. "He's not manufacturing 40 pounds of weight loss," Biggs said.

Mark Richard Hilbun, accused of killing two people and injuring three others, has been diagnosed as a manic-depressive.
