Three men have been sentenced to three years in jail in a scheme that authorities said transported women from Mexico to work as prostitutes in five Northern California cities. The three, who were convicted after pleading no contest to pimping and pandering, were sentenced Friday in Sacramento County Superior Court. The defendants took women, ages 21 to 30, from Mexico to work in brothels in Chico, Stockton, Yuba City, Fairfield and Sacramento, according to state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris.

A Sacramento County Superior Court judge ruled Monday that about 450 employees cannot participate in this week's planned walkout at the University of California medical centers. The unions must maintain a minimum level of staffing among certain units, including the burn centers, the intensive care units and the neonatal intensive care units, the judge ruled. If all the respiratory therapists in the burn centers and poison control units were to strike, the court ruled, there would be a "substantial and imminent threat to public health or safety.

Reporting from Sacramento -- Democratic lawmakers sued state Controller John Chiang on Tuesday, arguing that he misused his power last summer when he docked their pay for passing a budget he said was not balanced. The lawsuit, filed in Sacramento County Superior Court, does not seek reimbursement of the $583,200 in withheld pay. Lawmakers want the court to bar the controller from doing it again if they approve a budget that they deem balanced. Chiang, a Democrat, said he was exercising authority given to him by voters when they approved Proposition 25, a constitutional amendment, in 2010.

Patient care workers at the University of California's medical centers plan to stage a two-day strike next week, but the number taking part will be decided Monday in Sacramento County Superior Court. A judge is expected to rule on a request for a temporary restraining order limiting the number of workers who may take part in the walkout. According to UC officials, the focus is on workers considered essential for patient care. The union representing nearly 13,000 patient healthcare workers has notified UC that it plans to strike from Tuesday at 4 a.m. to Thursday at 4 a.m. Several thousand others could participate in a “sympathy strike” Tuesday.

SACRAMENTO — A judge handed Gov. Jerry Brown a key victory Monday, clearing the way for the governor's tax initiative to appear first among the propositions on the November ballot, possibly increasing its chances of passing. Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Michael P. Kenny ruled against Molly Munger, proponent of a tax proposal that rivals Brown's. Munger contended in a lawsuit that Los Angeles County election officials and state legislators violated California law to make the governor's plan first among the 11 fall ballot measures.
