OAKLAND - City officials have crafted a $1.17-million settlement to a civil rights lawsuit filed on behalf of a dozen people who were injured by police during Occupy Oakland protests in the fall of 2011. The suit, filed by the National Lawyers Guild, challenged the Police Department's use of shotgun-fired beanbags stuffed with lead shot, and teargas grenades, as well as allegedly unconstitutional arrests and use of force. The City Council voted in closed session last month to put the settlement, which admits no fault on the part of the city, on the consent calendar for its open meeting July 16, city attorney's spokesman Alex Katz said Wednesday.

You have to wonder how much tragedy one person must endure. And then marvel at how they keep on going. There was Collene Campbell, victims rights advocate, two-time mayor of San Juan Capistrano, testifying in Washington last week on behalf of John Ashcroft. Whatever your feelings about President Bush's embattled choice for attorney general, how could you not admire Campbell's stoic voice on behalf of victims' rights in that national forum? Especially when it was the last place she wanted to be.

A judge sentenced Lawrence Raymond Cowell to 25 years to life in prison Friday for the airplane murder of a young Anaheim man, ending nearly eight years of trials and court hearings for the victim's family which spurred their involvement in a statewide court-reform movement. Cowell, 41, formerly of Anaheim, has been convicted of first-degree murder twice now for the April 17, 1982, death of Scott Campbell, whose body was dropped from an airplane and never found. A co-defendant, Donald P.

April 17--which is Wednesday--has no special notation on my calendar. But every year, when I happen to spot it's that date, my thoughts always turn to Gary and Collene Campbell of San Juan Capistrano, and how they might be doing. Some years on that date they're a few miles out past Santa Catalina Island. They turn off the motor of their boat and gently toss roses into the water. Other times they spend that date down the coast in Mexico, maybe with their grandchildren.

The first of two men accused of killing Scott Campbell and dropping his body into the ocean from an airplane was convicted of first-degree murder Monday, nearly four years after Gary and Collene Campbell first began looking into their son's disappearance. Larry R. Cowell, 37, formerly of Anaheim, was convicted by Superior Court Judge Donald A. McCartin without a jury in Santa Ana. He could receive 25 years to life in prison at sentencing on Jan. 6, 1986.

Gary and Collene Campbell of San Juan Capistrano will drive their motorboat through choppy waters two miles beyond Catalina Island on Friday morning, just as they do every year on April 17, and toss out homegrown roses in memory of their son, Scott. On the same day, Donald P. DiMascio, 36, of El Monte, is scheduled to go on trial for murder in Scott Campbell's death.

Lawrence Raymond Cowell, whose conviction in the death of a 27-year-old Anaheim man was overturned because his confession was coerced, Wednesday was found guilty of first-degree murder for a second time. Cowell, 41, who had been free from prison on $200,000 bail for more than a year, was immediately taken into custody.

Scott Campbell, Orange County's leading scorer while at La Quinta High School last season, will be ineligible during the coming academic year at Cal State Fullerton because the basketball player did not meet the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.'s required Scholastic Aptitude Test score. Under the NCAA's Prop. 48, Campbell, who failed to score the minimum 700 on the SAT, will not be allowed to practice or play with the Titans until he becomes eligible in his sophomore season in 1990-91.

Gary and Collene Campbell sat grim-faced in court this week as they listened with jurors to the sound of their voices on their son's answering machine, the panic increasing with each day's unanswered calls. "It was as if it all happened 10 minutes ago," Collene Campbell said afterward, red-eyed from a full day of tears. But it was more than seven years ago that 27-year-old Scott Campbell disappeared.

Lawrence Raymond Cowell of Anaheim, convicted of manslaughter in one incident and awaiting a new trial after a separate murder conviction was overturned, is in trouble again. And all thanks to the same woman responsible for Cowell's arrest in the April 17, 1982, murder of Scott Campbell in an airplane near Santa Catalina Island--the victim's mother, Collene Campbell, who has become a leader of a crime victims' rights organization.
