The preliminary move has ignited paycheck passions among bank customers and owners and has raised questions about the action's legality. On Wednesday, a state association of financial institutions characterized the proposed law as senseless and destined to die in court.

Santa Monica City Atty. Robert M. Myers' refusal to prosecute all violators of a new law aimed at keeping people from living in the city's parks has triggered an unsuccessful move to fire him for insubordination. The City Council on Wednesday voted 5-2 against dismissal of their controversial attorney; it also refused to order Myers to prosecute violators of the new law. The law was suggested by the city's homeless task force, endorsed by the police chief and passed by the City Council in April.

After years of warring with itself, the city of Santa Monica appears to be on the brink of adopting a grand plan for managing its large and unruly homeless population. One of the nation's most liberal city councils, forced into action by mounting complaints over a growing crime rate, unusable parks and a panhandler on every corner, is trying to figure out where to strike the balance between compassion for the homeless and the safety of everyone else.
