Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel has been chosen to decide whether the Orange County district attorney's office should be disqualified from prosecuting GOP political aide Rhonda J. Carmony, who faces trial on charges of election law violations. Carmony's trial, which was set to begin Monday, was delayed after Superior Court Judge David O.

A judge ruled Tuesday the Orange County district attorney's office does not have to disclose internal information that led to the filing of felony charges against Republican Party activist Rhonda J. Carmony, accused of wrongdoing in 1995's special recall election in the 67th Assembly District. Her attorney, Creighton Laz, wanted prosecutors to reveal the details of their discussions about the case against Carmony.

When an attorney for GOP political aide Rhonda J. Carmony filed a pretrial motion a few months ago, he simply asked that Dist. Atty. Michael Capizzi be disqualified from prosecuting his client on election law violations. But the recusal motion has had an apparently unintended effect: So far four judges have been removed or disqualified themselves from ruling on the issue. The fourth, Superior Court Judge Frank F. Fasel, removed himself Monday, giving no explanation for his decision.
