An appeals court has disqualified a judge from a custody case after he called a woman who appeared before him a "Jewish-American princess." Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert D. Monarch apologized to Nanci Rosen Carter, and, noting that he too is Jewish, said he did not intend the remark to be derogatory. Monarch denied he had any bias or prejudice against Carter, and refused to step down from the case. But Carter argued that the judge was clearly biased against her and filed an appeal.

Dozens of protesters have picketed at Lam's Garden Grove restaurant since March 12 demanding his recall because he did not appear at demonstrations against a Little Saigon merchant who displayed a Communist flag and Ho Chi Minh picture.

Orange County, once a nearly all-white suburban enclave, will be one-third minority by the year 2000. That transition won't be easy. Diversity will require tolerance and understanding, especially from public officials, who set the example for others. That's why two recent incidents are so discouraging.
