The white gloves are off and the bounds of civility are being tested in the quiet and affluent city of San Marino. There are charges of greed, snobbery and "white flight." There is talk of legal action and of recall efforts against the City Council and school board. One woman was so mad, she later confessed, that she wanted to "hit a lady" with a tomato at a public meeting. Why the uproar?

A neighborhood group in an unincorporated area that was rebuffed by San Marino last year in an annexation effort has filed a $121.4-million claim, contending that the city's rejection lowered property values and caused emotional distress. The Greenwood Homeowners Assn., representing an unincorporated area north of the exclusive city, said that the value of 470 single-family residences each dropped by $150,000 and 347 apartments and condominiums each lost $100,000 in value by not being annexed.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at halting a March 5 election over the transfer of 71 homes from the Pasadena Unified School District to the San Marino Unified School District. Judge Ronald M. Sohigian refused to overturn a Sept. 14 decision by the state Board of Education authorizing the vote. Only one of more than 40 children in the unincorporated 22 acres attends Pasadena schools, according to the county Office of Education. The rest go to private schools.

The San Marino City Council, hoping to end a monthslong controversy over whether to annex two unincorporated county areas, has voted not to accept the neighborhoods into its affluent borders. The council voted Thursday to end its consideration of the annexation requests. "It's dead now as far as we're concerned," said Michi Takahashi, executive assistant to the Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission, which oversees annexation matters.
