Until Detective Mark Fuhrman came along, attorney Robert Tourtelot's highest-profile case had been a suit involving an Anaheim card club. At 60, after three decades as a lawyer, he was about to not only collide with fame, but to experience a stunning betrayal. Fuhrman was already being accused by the Simpson defense and some media reports of being a bigot when Tourtelot agreed to represent him. Fuhrman reassured his attorney that he had no skeletons in the closet, Tourtelot said.

The chairman of the California Horse Racing Board said Tuesday that the agency should not take a proactive role to investigate reports of poor labor and living conditions in the stables of the state's racetracks. At a board meeting at Hollywood Park, Robert Tourtelot, a prominent Los Angeles defense attorney and Pete Wilson appointee, said a recent Times story detailing problems in the so-called backstretches of California's 15 racing venues was "filled with inaccuracies."

After first indicating they should not take a "proactive role," California Horse Racing Board officials announced Monday that they would conduct their own assessment of the working and living conditions in the stable areas of California's racetracks. Board officials disclosed that they accompanied health inspectors to the Pomona Fairplex last week to determine if workers were still living in the so-called backstretch after being ordered to leave in March.

O.J. Simpson's legal woes were compounded Friday when Ronald Lyle Goldman's father and sister filed a wrongful death suit contending that the ex-football star "brutally murdered" the 25-year-old waiter. Even if Simpson is acquitted of criminal charges that he killed Goldman and Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, he could still face civil damages.

The lawyer for Los Angeles Police Detective Mark Fuhrman, who earlier this week filed a $50-million libel action against New Yorker magazine, on Friday amended that complaint to include O.J. Simpson attorney Robert L. Shapiro as a defendant. Robert H. Tourtelot, the attorney for Fuhrman, said his decision to name Shapiro as a defendant was made after he received information linking the defense lawyer to a meeting with New Yorker writer Jeffrey Toobin in July, 1994.

In a groundswell of support, hundreds of Americans disgruntled with the Simpson verdicts have phoned or written Fred Goldman, father of murder victim Ronald Lyle Goldman, offering condolences, expertise and, perhaps most importantly, money for his wrongful-death lawsuit against O.J. Simpson. But the outpouring has remained unchanneled because Goldman has not yet made key decisions, such as whether to expand his legal team, according to his current lawyer.

None of the 17 fingerprints collected by investigators at the Bundy Drive condominium where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman were murdered belonged to O.J. Simpson, a Los Angeles police technician who analyzed the evidence testified Thursday. In fact, fingerprint specialist Gilbert Aguilar, who was called as a witness by the former football star's attorneys, said the police knew on June 13, 1994, that Simpson's prints were not among those collected at the crime scene.
