A New York actress has filed a lawsuit against Mike Tyson, accusing the former heavyweight champion of grabbing her in a "sexually suggestive" way at a Manhattan night club. The woman, Robin Young, seeks $2 million in damages from Tyson for the alleged incident on Nov. 12, 1990. Tyson already faces trial next year on a criminal indictment that charges he raped a contestant at the Miss Black America contest in Indianapolis.

"USA Today on TV" also has lost a face. Robin Young, the Los Angeles-based anchor and correspondent, has left the syndicated program that premiered last September. In a prepared statement, Young noted difficulties in the show's original format of four anchors. Now, she said, referring to a revamped format and the Jan. 2 departure of financial anchor Kenneth Walker for personal reasons, "it certainly didn't need three. . . ." She wished those still working on the show well.

Shares of Interpore International surged 29% Thursday after the Irvine biotechnology company drew praise from analysts during a CNBC broadcast. "We love Interpore International," David Alger, chief investment officer of Fred Alger Management, told CNBC Thursday. "They've come up with artificial bone material for use in surgery," Alger said, adding that he believes the company is going to grow rapidly. The biotechnology company makes synthetic bone material, known as Pro Osteon, from sea coral.

Your article (May 14) on the planned ouster of Santa Ana City Councilman Dan Griset (Democrat) from his post on the Orange County Transportation Commission (a nonpartisan post) by fellow council members (Republicans) replays a familiar tune. Although the state Constitution requires all local government offices to be non partisan, Republican local elected officials follow their Central Committee line by routinely removing Democrats from leadership positions on county boards and commissions whenever they feel that person has become sufficiently prominent to contemplate running for higher elected office--against an inevitably Republican incumbent.

"USA Today"--that is, the TV version scheduled to hit the air in September on a daily half-hour schedule--already has three of its four anchors signed, sources tell us. And staffers from the newspaper version, who had hoped for a shot at video fame, can return to their desks. The jobs went to network pros. Bill Macatee of NBC Sports will anchor the Sports section. Also inked: former ABC White House correspondent Kenneth Walker and Robin Young, who contributed to the "Today" show.

All those speakers at the Republican convention who kept saying President Reagan didn't and Bush won't raise our taxes are being dishonest with the American people! Our taxes were raised last year in a sneaky maneuver labeled tax "reform." My income did not increase in 1987, yet my taxes went up by $1,000. Everybody I know paid at least $1,000 more in income tax--from secretaries to computer programmers. The guy who sits in the booth at my parking lot paid more in income taxes.
