Carona's request to file a secret motion to move his corruption trial out of Southern California violates the 1st Amendment's free-press protection, a media attorney argued Thursday. Carona's attorneys have asked U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford to keep their motion to move the trial sealed because releasing it would create additional inflammatory publicity about the case.

Former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona has lost his bid to have a prosecutor removed from his corruption case because of the prosecutor's role in the wiretapping of a government informant.

Flanked by two attorneys and a public relations advisor, Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona met with reporters one on one Tuesday, hours after he was named in a 10-count federal indictment accusing him of widespread corruption.

One of Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona's top assistants Thursday criticized a proposed initiative to take sales tax revenue from his department and give it to firefighters, a move that caused the firefighters union to accuse Carona of backing down from a campaign pledge and threatening their support for him. The Orange County Professional Firefighters Assn. supported Carona's campaign for sheriff in 1998, in part because he promised to support sharing sales tax revenue with firefighters.

A judge on Friday refused to dismiss a criminal case against an Orange County sheriff's captain accused of soliciting campaign cash for her boss and ordered an April jury trial. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Dewey L. Falcone ruled that Capt. Christine Murray failed to prove she was the victim of discriminatory prosecution. "You're asking me to draw an inference I don't think is justified based on what I've seen," he told Murray's attorney, Jennifer Keller.
