Only 14,857 people voted in the primary, but the battle for a Municipal Court judgeship in East Los Angeles is as hotly contested as any race on this year's ballot, highlighted by personal attacks and charges of carpetbagging. It also illustrates how expensive it has become to run for virtually any office. The contenders are Teresa Sanchez-Gordon, a federal public defender, and Tony Luna, an East Los Angeles Municipal Court Commissioner.

Director Tim Burton will have to face trial in a lawsuit by ex-girlfriend Lisa Marie that alleges she was cheated out of assets he promised her during their long-term relationship, a judge ruled Friday. The question of whether Marie and Burton had an oral agreement supporting her claims is a triable issue of fact, L.A. Superior Court Judge Teresa Sanchez-Gordon ruled. Burton's lawyer, Joseph Mannis, had argued that the agreement, if it occurred, was not relevant because the settlement Marie signed released Burton from any further obligations.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa Sanchez-Gordon has dismissed a lawsuit brought against Tim Burton by his ex-girlfriend over whether the acclaimed director owes her more of his earnings. Lisa Marie sued Burton in December 2006. She claimed she was cheated out of money that Burton had promised her during their relationship. The judge's ruling noted that Marie and Burton signed agreements around the time they went their separate ways in 2001 that provided her with at least $5.5 million, rights to a New York co-op apartment and a Jaguar coupe.

The legal establishment in Los Angeles was segregated in 1937 when African American attorney Walter L. Gordon Jr. pulled on a childhood connection to set up his new practice. The former newspaper carrier was given office space "three steps" from the pressroom of the California Eagle, a black weekly founded in 1879 by an escaped slave. The newspaper's location proved fortuitous. It was on Central Avenue, "the city's black thoroughfare," Gordon later said, and he benefited from being one of the first black lawyers to hang a shingle in the city's African American community.

There are just three judicial races on the Los Angeles County ballot, but they are all hotly contested. If nothing else, the races are indicative of how expensive it has become to run for a judgeship. For example, Teresa Sanchez-Gordon, a federal public defender scrapping it out with Municipal Court Commissioner Antonio Luna for a Municipal Court judgeship in East Los Angeles, has spent upward of $200,000. Several other candidates have spent more than $100,000.

Spanish speakers in Ventura County can hear radio tips about how to handle traffic tickets and small claims cases. In Fresno County, they can attend Spanish-language clinics on divorce and rental disputes. And throughout California, they can download child custody forms in Spanish. Superior Courts around the state are working to make the justice system more accessible by reaching out to Spanish speakers, many of whom do not have lawyers or any legal experience.
