Richard C. Gilbert lost the "surrogate mother" case. Then he castigated the respected trial judge, Richard N. Parslow Jr., in a mean and personal attack. The judge, Mr. Gilbert said, wasn't bonded to his brain. Citizens should view Mr. Gilbert with contempt, irrespective of their views on surrogate mothering. Mr. Gilbert is an embarrassment to the 8,000 lawyers in Orange County who have an interest in maintaining the integrity of the profession--and the public's respect for it. First, the comment was a cheap shot.

It was once a golden rule for lawyers: Do not try your case in the press. That tarnished code has been blackened by attorneys on both sides of the Anna L. Johnson surrogate mother case. Indeed, the media--often accused of exploiting courtroom drama to sell newspapers or boost ratings--have been drawn intimately into this legal battle.

It was once a golden rule for lawyers: Don't try your case in the press. But that already tarnished code has been blackened further by attorneys on both sides of the Anna L. Johnson surrogate mother case. Indeed the media--often accused of exploiting courtroom drama to sell newspapers or boost ratings--have been drawn intimately and uncomfortably into this legal battle.

Attorneys for surrogate mother Anna L. Johnson and the infertile couple who hired her to carry and deliver their baby face a courtroom showdown today because they cannot agree on a temporary custody arrangement for the boy born Wednesday. Johnson was prepared to agree to "shared parenting," in which she would allow full visitation to Mark and Crispina Calvert, said the surrogate's lawyer, Richard C. Gilbert. But the couple said they would rather see the baby in a foster home.

Continuing a long legal quest, a surrogate mother has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to determine whether she has parental rights to a 2-year-old Tustin boy. Attorney Richard C. Gilbert, arguing that his client, Anna M. Johnson, has been the victim of a "shameful collapse" of the judicial system, said Sunday that a petition was mailed to the nation's highest court early last week. The court could decide by this fall whether Johnson's claim will be accepted for review.
