The city of Palmdale has sued 18 developers, construction companies and engineering firms, seeking reimbursement of more than $350,000 for damage caused by floods in 1991. The lawsuit, filed Monday in Lancaster Superior Court, alleges that the companies negligently designed and constructed erosion- and flood-control devices. As a result, the suit said, commercial and residential property in the city was "inundated with water, mud and debris during rains" in February and March, 1991.

In the 36th state Assembly District, which stretches from Santa Clarita through the Antelope Valley and includes most of Los Angeles County's remaining open space, candidate Hunt Braly has been fighting the label of "developer pawn" since the very first candidate forum. But campaign finance statements filed Thursday indicate that apparently only 9% of contributions to Braly came from developers--less than $10,000 of the $118,055 Braly received between March and May.
