Brower's spacious penthouse office, where the heads of big-horned Alaskan sheep and deer he's killed stare down from a wall near the wet bar, they're not always there just because he's a good attorney. They're also there, often facing a mountain of damning evidence, because the tall, dapper defense attorney with the tailor-made suits and flashy cars is a Player.

Re "After Shooting of Officer, Judge Rues a Bail Decision," Feb. 12: In defense of Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert R. Fitzgerald: I have been a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney in this county for 30 years. I have watched defense lawyers regularly disqualify Fitzgerald from their cases because he is regarded as too severe. He has sentenced more people to death row than any other Orange County judge. He does not, like many of his colleagues, judge while looking over his shoulder.
