One proposal devotes more than $1 million to random drug testing for state prison inmates. Another sets aside $4.

State Court of Appeal Justice Edward J. Wallin, one of four judges named in late 1982 to the then-newly created court division in Santa Ana, said Friday that he is stepping down to take a position at a private mediation company.

A blue-ribbon commission proposed Monday that the federal courts in Los Angeles and Santa Ana, which annually have the most civil filings in the nation, split into civil and criminal divisions "as an important step toward easing cost and calendar burdens." If the recommendation is adopted by Central District of California trial judges, the district would become the first federal court system in the nation to have such a division.
