In 1985, an 18-year-old Calabasas High School student, from a prominent Calabasas family, gunned down a schoolmate during a brief, uncharacteristic and emotionally difficult time in both young men's lives. Both of these high-society kids met with circumstances they were unable to deal with--and both resorted to violence. The final outcome was a tragedy for all involved. The Times reported the story as in unfolded with many front-page and front Metro page stories. The Times kept an unbiased viewpoint and simply reported.

A Calabasas man convicted of murdering a schoolmate who exposed him as a homosexual asked a federal court Tuesday to grant his release, arguing that Gov. Gray Davis has unlawfully denied him parole. Robert Rosenkrantz, whose bid for freedom after 17 years in state prison has drawn widespread support, said that there is no evidence that he remains dangerous and that Davis is blocking his release because of a blanket policy against parole.

The state attorney general's office sought Monday to remove a Los Angeles Superior Court judge from hearing a case seeking parole for convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz, saying Judge Kathryne Stoltz is prejudiced and cannot be impartial. "Judge Stoltz has heard extensive arguments on this case, and has issued strongly worded orders," said Nathan Barankin, a spokesman for the attorney general's office.

After bouncing from courtroom to courtroom, the parole case of convicted killer Robert Rosenkrantz finally found a home after Van Nuys Superior Court's Supervising Judge Paul Gutman assigned it to himself Tuesday. "The People of California and Mr. Rosenkrantz deserve to have a judge as soon as possible, and I'm a judge," Gutman said. "I have a black robe like other judges." Rosenkrantz, 33, is serving time for the 1985 fatal shooting of a fellow Calabasas student who exposed Rosenkrantz as gay.

An appeals court Friday stayed the parole of convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz, whose release had been ordered on grounds he did not receive a fair hearing from a parole board. Justice Miriam Vogel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal stopped the release at 5 p.m. after the attorney general's office sought an emergency stay, said Stephen Green, assistant secretary for the California Youth and Adult Correctional Agency. "He will stay in jail until the court hears our appeal," Green said.

The state parole board Friday set a release date for a convicted murderer because a court demanded it and threatened to hold members in contempt if they refused--a first in California history, according to attorneys involved in the case. The state Board of Prison Terms declared Robert Rosenkrantz of Calabasas suitable for parole 15 years after he murdered a schoolmate who exposed him as a homosexual. Board members said they did so only because an appellate court had demanded it.

Concerned that an appeal may extend his client's time in prison, a lawyer for convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz said Saturday that he will not challenge a state appeals court ruling ordering a new judge to hear his client's parole case. Gov. Gray Davis had sought the removal of the judge who last September ordered the state parole board to release Rosenkrantz. Davis blocked his parole and Rosenkrantz sued.

A state appeals court Friday upheld a bid by the state attorney general's office to remove a Superior Court judge from hearing the parole case of convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz, who killed a Calabasas High School classmate for exposing him as a homosexual. The 2-1 ruling by the 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles bars Superior Court Judge Kathryne Ann Stoltz from determining whether Gov. Gray Davis wrongly denied parole to Rosenkrantz.

Speaking out tearfully, the parents of convicted murderer Robert Rosenkrantz on Tuesday denounced Gov. Gray Davis' decision to block their son's parole and urged his immediate release.

Barbara Redman, the mother of a Calabasas teen-ager who was shot to death by a schoolmate in front of the Redman home last year, has died in a local hospital after an operation for an undisclosed illness, relatives said Tuesday. Redman, 42, whose son, Steven, was shot to death in 1985, unsuccessfully pleaded with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office last year to reinstate charges that could have meant the death penalty or life imprisonment for Robert M.
