A judge today is set to decide whether to halt construction at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, a decision that could force the 1998 Super Bowl and the 1997 Charger season to be shifted to the Rose Bowl. With last-minute negotiations failing Wednesday to produce a settlement, Superior Court Judge Anthony Joseph will rule on a request by attorneys for former City Council member Bruce Henderson to declare that city officials violated the law by beginning the construction only hours after the Dec.

This city's razor-close race for mayor, already attracting national attention because of write-in candidate and surf-shop owner Councilwoman Donna Frye, added another complication Wednesday: a court challenge over ballots with "empty ovals." A lawsuit filed by the San Diego League of Women Voters asks a judge to force election officials to find and count write-in votes that may have been overlooked because voters did not fill in a blank oval next to their candidate's name.

A federal judge on Thursday rejected a sewage-treatment and water-reclamation system that the federal government was trying to force the city of San Diego to build. U.S. District Judge Rudi M. Brewster ruled that the proposed system would not be in the public interest. It would waste money and water, he said. The decision is a victory for the city and the San Diego Area Wastewater Management District. They are parties to the lawsuit and opposed the proposed sewage-treatment system.

The federal and state governments teamed up to sue San Diego for discharging raw and inadequately treated sewage into the ocean and local waterways 1,814 times since 1983. The San Diego federal court civil suit by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the state Regional Water Quality Control Board accuses the city of ignoring a July 1 deadline to upgrade its sewage facilities.

Ending an eleventh-hour political and legal drama that threatened to postpone San Diego's City Council elections, the city and the Chicano Federation reached an out-of-court settlement of the federation's lawsuit, thus allowing the first district-only council election since the City Charter was adopted in 1931. U.S. District Judge John S. Rhoades tentatively accepted a settlement of the class-action suit aimed at increasing the council's size and altering the way district boundaries are drawn.

Re "Too Big a Stink Over Waste Plant," Nov. 3. Sunday's editorial was mean and sarcastic. The Sepulveda Basin is the only nice place left in the central Valley. It's a beautiful park area. There are many species of birds and wildlife there. Yes, we have the Tillman Water Reclamation Plant. Isn't that enough? At least they put in the Japanese gardens to compensate. Why was the building built for septic waste without the neighborhood's knowledge and without an environmental impact report?

After a season of high hopes and disappointing results, the San Diego Chargers are no longer contestants for pro football's annual prize. But that is not to say that San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium no longer provides high-stakes, thumb-in-the-eye combat.

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.

Bob Payne would like to put this city in uniform. At first glance, the businessman would seem to have chosen the right town, thanks to the efforts of the U.S. Navy and the Marine Corps. But the uniform that Payne has in mind is more suitable for the gridiron than the drill field, and is marked by a red, green and brown logo. A soaring football occupies the center of the emblem; slashing through its middle are the words "Super Bowl XXII," and, around the edge, "San Diego Host."
