Judge Allows UFW Into Grape Suit: Pasadena Superior Court Judge Richard Montes ruled that the United Farm Workers can become a party to an antitrust lawsuit filed in June by the California Table Grape Commission against the Vons supermarket chain.

But as part of a June settlement of the lawsuit, Vons had agreed to begin advertising again.

I was shocked by the way statistics on child homicide were presented in "Slayings of Children Decline" (Jan. 31).

A Pasadena Superior Court judge, in what has been described as an unusually harsh sanction, fined an Arcadia attorney more than $11,000 for filing a "frivolous" lawsuit against a former client. Ronald N. Gottschalk, being sued for legal malpractice, had responded to the suit by accusing the ex-client and his family of alleged racketeering violations that he claimed damaged his law practice. But Presiding Judge Richard Montes criticized Gottschalk's 71-page, $17.
