Medical tool and chemical maker Beckman Coulter Inc., based in Brea, would be sold to a Washington, D.C., company for $6.8 billion under a deal being offered to stockholders. Beckman, which manufactures laboratory equipment for biotechnology research, would be purchased by Danaher Corp. and become part of its life sciences and diagnostics business. Beckman has been entertaining offers since late last year. The proposed sale to Danaher is the culmination of developments that began when the Food and Drug Administration said Beckman made unapproved changes to a heart disease test that resulted in faulty readings.

LAS VEGAS - Liberace's old off-Strip mansion is up for sale for a veritable song, but is the property fabulous or a decrepit fixer-upper? Built in 1962, the once-lavish 14,939-square-foot spread sits on a half-acre lot near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and features two bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and several large areas for entertaining. There are flashes of the legendary pizazz once embodied by Liberace, whose life was the subject of the recent HBO film, “Behind the Candelabra,” which details the eccentric entertainer's secretive romance with former chauffeur and lover Scott Thorson.

A state appeals court has stalled the controversial sale of 24 government buildings, ruling Monday afternoon that the transaction cannot go forward this week as planned and delaying it until at least January. The Schwarzenegger administration had hoped to help fill the state's yawning budget deficit by selling the buildings ? including the homes of the state Supreme Court and two appeals courts ? to raise $1.2 billion for this year's shortfall and then leasing them back. But two former members of the state building authority filed suit last month to halt the sale, arguing that it was a waste of taxpayer money.

Five months after he opened PNK Pro Beauty Supplies in Glendale, owner Karhen Abramyan has put the shop up for sale. He's gotten a few lowball offers in the last few weeks, but no deal. "I have $60,000 in inventory here, I can't just sell it for $50,000," said Abramyan, who is asking $95,000. Blame the bad economy. Buyers and sellers of California businesses are hampered because the vast pools of money that once fueled sales have dried up.

A trio of Beverly Hills trophy estates once owned by Guess co-founder Georges Marciano are being sold through a bankruptcy proceeding. Marciano, 65, was countersued for defamation in 2008 by seven former employees who he alleged had embezzled millions of dollars. A jury awarded the employees $470 million, which the judge later reduced to $260 million. The sales are subject to court approval. The most expensive property is the former home of Columbia Pictures honcho Harry Cohn and, later, talk-show host Mike Douglas.
