The Los Angeles City Council unanimously agreed Tuesday to hire a San Francisco law firm to handle the city's suit aimed at halting the aerial spraying of the pesticide malathion in the battle against the Mediterranean fruit fly. Councilman Joel Wachs, who proposed the suit, said the firm of Heller, Erhman, White & McAuliffe has experts in environmental law. The council did not place a dollar limit on the contract.
