Louis "Skip" Miller, known as one of the most hard-nosed and aggressive attorneys in Los Angeles, is often hired to defend the city and its Police Department from accusations of wrongdoing. But did he engage in wrongdoing himself--possibly tampering with a jury--in a high-profile case involving missing photos of the Robert F. Kennedy assassination?

Calls for a revival of the ideals of Robert F. Kennedy and expressions of hope that America may soon enter a more progressive political era marked a daylong conference in Los Angeles Saturday commemorating the 20th anniversary of Kennedy's last campaign. Three of Kennedy's children, numerous political associates, farm labor leader Cesar Chavez and former Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. joined hundreds of Kennedy faithful in attending the event at Loyola-Marymount University.

A day after being turned down by the California Supreme Court, Sirhan Sirhan filed a petition in Los Angeles federal court Thursday challenging his conviction in the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Sirhan contends that Los Angeles police and prosecutors altered, destroyed and suppressed evidence that would have cleared him of the crime.

Thousands of photographs destroyed by the Los Angeles Police Department two months into the investigation of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy were duplicates, an LAPD spokesman said Friday. "They went through the stuff and got rid of superfluous photos, said Cmdr. William Booth, quoting a retired member of the department who does not want to be identified or "get involved with the press."

The Los Angeles Police Department has apologized to the family of the late Robert F. Kennedy and removed items from a homicide exhibit in Las Vegas that included the dress shirt worn by the senator when he was assassinated in 1968, officials said Tuesday night. The shirt was among a number of items included in the highly publicized display at the 2010 California Homicide Investigators Assn. Conference, which is being hosted by the LAPD. The crime-scene evidence can be seen by the general public for the next two days.

I had a good chuckle over Sirhan B. Sirhan's feelings of frustration after 18 years of prison life. (Times, May 29). He was "dumbfounded," "speechless," and "shocked," that he was denied parole for another two years. Sirhan always admitted to the killing of Robert F. Kennedy and now wants to be set free to be "out of your hair." Actually, I don't mind paying taxes to cover his room and board bill at Soledad prison. He portrays himself as a victim, but he is no less a victim than the man he murdered.

A Santa Monica Superior Court jury Monday recommended that a Bakersfield farmer be awarded more than $1.1 million in damages because a tabloid newspaper identified him as the real assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. The money would go to Khalid Khawar, who was standing next to Kennedy on the night he was killed at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968. The Globe, a supermarket tabloid, printed a story in which conspiracy theorist Robert Morrow said Khawar, not Sirhan Sirhan, was the true assassin.

It may not be the most trenchant documentary, but "Ethel," Rory Kennedy's otherwise superb tribute to her mother and, in large part, her father, Robert F. Kennedy, is a moving, highly enjoyable, thoroughly absorbing portrait. Booked for a quick theatrical run before its upcoming HBO premiere, the film chronicles the life of Ethel Skakel Kennedy from her seemingly charmed childhood as the puckish daughter of a successful Chicago businessman to her 1950 marriage to RFK and her role, following her husband's 1968 assassination, as a devoted, competitive, at times free-spirited matriarch and torchbearer for RFK's famed social consciousness.

Gregory Freeman Stone's last day began with business as usual. That morning he talked with friend and next-door neighbor Floyd Nelson about the mission that had consumed more than a decade of his life: reopening the official investigation into the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. For many who knew him, Stone was an "unsung hero," a man attempting to "rewrite history."

A petition signed by educators and government officials in the Middle East has been sent to a parole board to urge the release from prison of convicted assassin Sirhan B. Sirhan, his Los Angeles attorney said Monday. The lawyer, Luke McKissack, said the petition was the result of two trips he made recently to the Middle East to seek support for Sirhan's parole. The petition suggested Sirhan's release could speed peace in the Middle East. Sirhan, 46, was convicted of gunning down Sen. Robert F.
