Van Nuys Superior Court Judge Alan B. Haber Friday declined to initiate contempt of court proceedings against two Los Angeles police officers who last week dragged a deputy public defender out of his courtroom on the orders of another judge. But the public defender's office is planning a disqualification campaign aimed at forcing the reassignment or transfer of the judge who issued the order.

A Los Angeles deputy public defender complained Monday that the U. S. Supreme Court encouraged future judicial abuse by barring him from suing the judge who ordered police officers to drag him into a Van Nuys Superior Court. Howard C. Waco called the high court's ruling Monday a "bad signal," saying it creates "an open-door policy where a judge could lose control and create a situation to do harm to an attorney and then have the courts give him free rein to do so."

The Supreme Court, dismissing a complaint filed by a Los Angeles lawyer who said that he had been "slammed" against a door in a Van Nuys court, ruled Monday that a judge may not be sued even if he orders an attorney to be roughed up in his courtroom. On a 5-3 vote, the high court said that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Raymond Mireles cannot be sued for allegedly ordering two police officers to "bring me a piece" of public defender Howard Waco.

A man who received a new trial after his murder conviction was overturned because he received what the court thought was inadequate representation was sentenced Friday to 27 years to life in prison, the same sentence he received after the first trial. Patrick Robert Aronson, 42, was convicted in 1987 of first-degree murder in the 1986 shooting of Robert Chris Piper, who was shot at Woodman Avenue and Ventura Boulevard after a dispute in a nearby bar.

A Van Nuys judge whose order resulted in a deputy public defender being dragged out of a courtroom won't be reassigned, despite a campaign by public defenders, the county's top judge said Monday.

Two Los Angeles police officers, who reportedly had been jokingly told by a judge to bring a public defender before him in pieces, allegedly dragged the protesting attorney out of a hearing before another judge Monday and hurled him through a courtroom door, bruising his leg. The incident in Van Nuys Superior Court sparked an immediate hearing by the second judge into the possibility of bringing contempt charges against the officers.
