The fate of Sunset Hall, a retirement home for aging radicals in the Mid-Wilshire District, may once again be in the hands of the courts. Joseph Cofre, a developer who had agreed to buy the facility for $1.2 million, has sued the nonprofit corporation that operates it, charging the group reneged on the deal. Cofre's suit contends that he has "incurred damages due to the delay in obtaining possession."

Sunset Hall, the home for aged activists in the Mid-Wilshire District, took an $18,000 bite out of its mounting deficit with two benefits in the past week, organizers said Monday. A takeover attempt by a developer last year left the home for old firebrands with a deficit that mounted by as much as $8,000 a month. A garden party in Brentwood on Sunday raised more than $10,000 to go along with $8,000 raised at a rock concert Wednesday at the Music Machine in West Los Angeles.

A Los Angeles judge Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order preventing the board of Sunset Hall, a retirement home for aged radicals, from pursuing plans to close the facility for at least 20 days. "There isn't much point in . . . having the residents moved out," Superior Court Judge John Zebrowski said during a meeting in chambers with attorneys for the board and for some of the residents opposed to the closure.

As retirement home parties go, the celebration that took place Thursday in the jacaranda-shaded courtyard at Sunset Hall was a typically quiet affair. Old men and women, some leaning on walkers, sat by a goldfish pond and waited for the usual amenities--plates of cake, plastic glasses filled with weak champagne, subdued entertainment.

The owners of Sunset Hall voted overwhelmingly Sunday not to sell the retirement home for aged radicals and to keep the Mid-Wilshire facility open. In a 139-7 decision, members of the nonprofit corporation that runs Sunset Hall resolved not to sell the property to a developer who had agreed to purchase it for $1.2 million. Last fall, the home's directors agreed to close and sell the facility in March because of low occupancy.

Sunset Hall's administrator and nearly the entire Board of Directors of the Mid-Wilshire District retirement home for aging radicals resigned en masse Monday, virtually ensuring the facility's doors will stay open for now. Ten of the 12 board members resigned, said their attorney, James Maupin, because it seemed they "would almost certainly have been outvoted" at a special April 1 membership meeting to decide the retirement home's future.

The aged firebrands of Sunset Hall are engaged in what could be their last battle. These are the people who manned the barricades in the 1930s to unionize the workers of America. In the 1950s, many of them struggled against McCarthyism. And in recent years, the old folks, some of them in walkers, piled into a van to demonstrate their support for Jesse Jackson's candidacy and to take part in the Los Angeles teachers' strike and the strike of Eastern Airlines employees.
