On Monday morning, five hours before his date with the matter of Daryl F. Gates vs. the Board of Police Commissioners, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ronald M. Sohigian stood at the courthouse escalators, talking to a prosecutor. Deputy Dist. Atty. Shirley Donoho had smiled when she saw him; here was a judge she had always liked and respected, and she told how she missed him now that he was handling cases outside her speciality. "He's a little bit on the shy side," she said.

The Los Angeles Police Commission, struggling to retain its control over the city's Police Department, on Thursday appealed a Superior Court ruling that effectively overturned the commission's decision to place Police Chief Daryl F. Gates on an involuntary 60-day leave. The appeal will revive a bitter turf battle between the civilian Police Commission and the City Council over who has authority to discipline the chief and manage the 8,300-member Police Department.

When Superior Court Judge Ronald M. Sohigian ruled that the Police Commission must bow to the Los Angeles City Council, he was ignoring L.A.'s political history. His opinion Monday, part of the Rodney King controversy, misread the philosophy of the framers of the City Charter. He said they intended commissioners to have merely supporting player status. The City Council, and to a lesser extent, the mayor, would be in charge. Judge, that's not what the city's founders had in mind.

Judge Ronald M. Sohigian canceled a temporary restraining order closing the Extasy, which is operating without proper zoning permits and disrupting legal businesses in the community. He did this on the grounds that closing would be a financial hardship to the owners of this club, Seven for the Money, a corporation that owns and operates several of these clubs. Does this imply that anyone can open and operate any type of business in any community without the proper permits and neighborhood approval by just stating that it would become a financial hardship to close them down?

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday requested the city attorney to review a judge's decision that allows nude dancing at a Northridge nightclub.
