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.

In San Marino, where homeowners must obey some of the country's strictest aesthetic regulations, the house on Somerset Place stands out like a beat-up Pinto on Rodeo Drive. Neighbors in this conservative enclave of stately homes call it the "jungle." The front garden's shrubs and cactuses obscure the one-story bungalow in a city that cites people for dead lawns or leaving a car in a driveway for a few days.

The cities of Pasadena and San Marino have approved a $1.5-million settlement with the family of Michael James Bryant, who died in police custody after police hogtied him and placed him face-down in the back of a squad car. Bryant's family filed a wrongful-death suit against both cities and the city of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles City Council has not yet given final approval to the settlement, in which the $1.5-million payment will be split between the municipalities.

A water district planning to build reservoirs at two San Marino sites has agreed to do an environmental study to settle a city lawsuit that questions the project's safety. As part of the settlement, the San Gabriel Water District agreed to the city's request for seismic studies of one part of the plan, which would place two 6-million-gallon tanks on a plain above the high school and near the Raymond Fault, officials said.

San Marino residents are suing a water district to stop construction of three large drinking water tanks until an environmental review assesses the dangers of placing them so close to homes and San Marino High School. "They're planning to put millions of gallons on a plain above our high school that sits 325 yards from the Raymond Fault without an environmental impact report," Gerald Knudson, a plaintiff and attorney, said Wednesday.

Pasadena barber Michael James Bryant, who was involved in a car chase and struggle with police last month, died of "cocaine intoxication and asphyxiation from restraint procedures," a coroner's spokesman said Wednesday. Bryant had a potentially lethal level of cocaine in his blood when he died shortly after 1 a.m. March 9, but the coroner described the death as a homicide, said spokesman Scott Carrier.

A Holocaust survivor who taught math in the San Marino Unified School District for 21 years has sued the district, claiming she was subjected to years of anti-Semitic harassment that school officials failed to stop or discourage. Georgia Gabor, 62, a Hungarian immigrant whose entire family was killed by the Nazis in World War II, said she became the target of anti-Semitic attacks at Huntington Middle School after she published her autobiography, "My Destiny: Survivor of the Holocaust," in 1981.
