Two former district attorneys, Ira Reiner and Robert Philibosian, on Tuesday endorsed challenger John Lynch over incumbent Gil Garcetti for the job. Seeking to capitalize on the failed prosecution of the O.J. Simpson case, Reiner and Philibosian announced their endorsements in front of the Santa Monica courthouse--where the civil wrongful death suit against Simpson is being tried. Philibosian charged that Garcetti's tenure has produced a "crisis of confidence" in the office.

Finally, it was over. After all the suspicions, the investigations, the court proceedings, it was over. Six years. Time enough for careers to be made, fortunes earned, reputations ruined and reputations restored. And so it was for all those intertwined in the judicial saga that began in August, 1983, and became known as McMartin.

A mistrial was declared Friday in the retrial of McMartin Pre-School molestation defendant Ray Buckey after the jury said it was "hopelessly and irreversibly hung" on all eight counts. "It is clear to me that the jury will not reach a verdict in this case," Superior Court Judge Stanley Weisberg announced after polling the 12 jurors.

He was an aggressive, award-winning investigative reporter--and, at times, an ombudsman paid to criticize his own television station, publicly, on his own television station. But Wayne Satz will always be best known in local journalistic and law enforcement circles for breaking the McMartin Pre-School molestation story. Satz had been working on a general story about child sexual abuse for a couple of months in late 1983 when he first heard about McMartin.

Mike Wallace wanted to interview Ray Buckey for "60 Minutes." Danny Davis, Buckey's attorney, had instructed his client to refuse all interview requests since he'd been arrested almost three years earlier. But Davis said yes to Wallace.

It was amusing to see former District Attorney Robert Philibosian, obviously distressed at his own foundering political career, resorting to such pettiness in his letter to The Times (May 11) by taking a potshot at John Van de Kamp, by far the best attorney general we have ever had in California. Philibosian's absurd devotion to Gov. George Deukmejian calls to mind Conrad's cartoon several years ago depicting a whimpering George Bush with his arms wrapped around President Reagan's legs.
