Atty. Roger Gunson on Monday wound up the first phase of the prosecution's final arguments in the McMartin Pre-School molestation trial.

The Supreme Court refused today to become involved in a dispute arising from the McMartin Pre-School child molestation case, the longest and costliest criminal trial in U.S. history. The justices, without comment, rejected an appeal from former teachers Virginia McMartin, 82, and Peggy Ann Buckey, 33, the mother and daughter of former Martin Pre-School owner Peggy McMartin Buckey.

A juror fell ill Tuesday while deliberating the last 13 counts in the marathon McMartin Pre-School molestation trial, as the panel's talks bogged down on questions about a conspiracy charge. It was uncertain whether the juror would be well enough to deliberate today.

Eight more charges were dismissed Monday in the trial of two teachers charged in the McMartin Pre-School molestation case. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William Pounders dismissed the molestation counts at the request of prosecutors, who said there was insufficient evidence to support the charges. Last week, Pounders dismissed 27 of 99 molestation charges filed against former McMartin preschool teachers Raymond Buckey, 30, and his mother, Peggy McMartin Buckey, 61.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge William Pounders, seeking to retain control of the molestation retrial of former McMartin Pre-School teacher Ray Buckey, has formally denied allegations that he is biased against the defense. Pounders, who presided over the nearly three-year, $13-million trial that culminated in the acquittals of Buckey, 31, and his mother, Peggy McMartin Buckey, 63, on child abuse charges, filed a 13-page response late Thursday.

Peggy McMartin Buckey, the administrator of the McMartin Pre-School in Manhattan Beach who was acquitted earlier this year on child-molestation charges, filed suit Wednesday against Los Angeles County, the city of Manhattan Beach and others she claims maliciously prosecuted and conspired against her. The Los Angeles Superior Court suit is very similar to one Buckey filed in federal court last summer. That claim was dismissed.

The jury in the McMartin Pre-School molestation trial today toured the now-closed Manhattan Beach nursery school where 11 children were allegedly sexually abused from 1978 to 1983. Defense attorneys for two former McMartin teachers requested the tour to demonstrate their contention that the school is so small that the molestations could only have occurred had everyone working at the nursery been aware of them. But only seven teachers were initially charged in the case. The charges against five were dismissed in 1986 for lack of evidence.

A state commission narrowly decided today to allow Peggy Ann Buckey, a former defendant in the McMartin Pre-School molestation case, to teach deaf and learning-disabled children. The Commission on Teacher Credentialing voted 7 to 6, with one abstention, to restore Buckey's teaching credential, following the opinion of an administrative law judge. There was no comment or debate.
