Angered that San Diego County Sheriff John Duffy set up a secret account for money seized in drug raids, the Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday to file a lawsuit to regain control of the money. The civil lawsuit is expected to be filed today in San Diego Superior Court. The board reached a consensus in closed session to go to court over the matter, which has further soured the already strained relationship between supervisors and the sheriff, who is retiring from office.

Officials of San Diego's 911 emergency telephone system failed to make the service accessible to deaf callers until months after they were required to do so under state law, according to documents obtained by The Times. The documents, including memos by telephone company employees who discovered the problem, indicate that the city resisted implementing the new system as late as June 24, 1986, only weeks before a San Diego woman died after her deaf husband's calls to 911 went unanswered.
