Normally the idea of a chicken barbecue before a memorial service might raise some eyebrows. But in the case of Robert C. Baker, who pioneered changes in American cuisine with his poultry innovations, the barbecue would seem more than appropriate. Baker, 84, died of a heart attack Monday at his home in North Lansing, N.Y.

His demeanor was subdued compared with the jittery exuberance of appearance at the criminal trial, but the testimony that Brian "Kato" Kaelin offered Tuesday in O.J. Simpson's civil trial was more colorful--and potentially more damaging to Simpson--than any of his previous sworn statements.

O.J. Simpson stepped down from the witness stand Tuesday without ever answering a friendly question, as his lawyer deferred examining him until the defense puts on its case next month. Defense attorney Robert C. Baker had initially told the judge that he had plenty of questions to put to his client as soon as the plaintiffs finished their interrogation. But when his turn came, Baker stood up and announced: "I'm sorry, I've changed my mind. I will call Mr.

"You're the little Dream Team." It was just a joking jab, uttered by an adversary in the midst of debate, but it pointed to the very real pressures that the man defending O.J. Simpson faces every day. As he prepares to defend Simpson against three civil lawsuits, Robert C. Baker indisputably has a tough act to follow.

I found "California's Lesson: Malpractice Reform Won't Cut Health-Care Costs," adapted from remarks made by Robert C. Baker to a House subcommittee (Opinion, Nov. 20), to be loaded with erroneous information. For example, in performing cataract surgery with lens implantation for 12 years, I have yet to perform the operation in the 15 minutes described by Baker. The figure of six to 20 operations per day is ridiculous; the average ophthalmologist in Santa Monica (my practice area as well as Baker's)

O.J. Simpson's marathon deposition in the wrongful death lawsuits filed against him by the families and estates of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman apparently ended not with an evidentiary bang, but with the legal equivalent of whimpers from all sides. The 507-page transcript of the eighth and ninth days--Feb.

Lawyers representing O.J. Simpson sought in court papers filed Monday to present what they consider evidence of a police frame-up, saying they only need the "barest of speculation" to offer the theory to jurors. In a motion, the defense said that those suing Simpson for wrongful death have to prove that police didn't plant blood or gloves in the double-murder investigation. Attorney Robert C. Baker said in the court papers that the defense does not have to point to any particular culprit.

O.J. Simpson was questioned Friday at a West Los Angeles law office about a glove and a knit cap found near the bloody bodies of his ex-wife and her friend, according to attorneys who are questioning the former football star in a civil wrongful death suit stemming from the murders. Simpson has now been questioned for five days, but the lawyers said his deposition will not be concluded next week because his chief attorney, Robert C. Baker, has a scheduling conflict.

Lawyers pressing wrongful death lawsuits against O.J. Simpson questioned former Simpson guest house tenant Brian "Kato" Kaelin for a second day in West Los Angeles on Thursday about the former football star's relationship with his ex-wife. They also questioned Kaelin on the events of June 12, 1994, when Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Lyle Goldman were murdered. "There was definitely new information" raised in Kaelin's deposition during questioning by Daniel M.

An overflow congregation of more than 1,000 attended a requiem Mass on Monday morning for Margaret Hart Ferraro, a onetime Broadway showgirl who became a successful businesswoman and was the wife of Los Angeles City Council President John Ferraro. "She was an independent woman long before it became fashionable," the councilman's nephew, Robert C. Baker, said in his eulogy. "She was exceedingly smart, and her sense of humor and insight into people and situations was legendary," Baker said.
