Citing shoddy construction materials and workmanship and repeated citations by building inspectors, Los Angeles city officials Friday threatened legal action against giant Tutor-Saliba Corp. over its work on a park-and-ride facility in the San Fernando Valley. The city's airport department has given Tutor-Saliba two weeks to meet a series of conditions to get work back on track on a parking garage and terminal building at the Van Nuys FlyAway.

The California Department of Transportation has awarded a $177-million contract to embattled public works construction giant Tutor-Saliba Corp. The action followed a ruling by retired Contra Costa Superior Court Judge Coleman F. Fannin, rejecting a competitor's plea to block Tutor-Saliba from the job to rebuild approaches to the Bay Bridge. The competitor claimed Tutor-Saliba is unreliable.

Public works construction magnate Ron Tutor has lived by a simple, merciless creed: "We ask no quarter. We give no quarter." Now that is coming back to haunt him. Tutor has made big marks on California's landscape while amassing hundreds of millions of dollars, a yacht he rents out for hundreds of thousands of dollars a week, and a Boeing 737 jetliner.

The city Board of Public Works unanimously awarded an $18-million sewer plant job Monday to construction giant Tutor-Saliba, despite concerns expressed by some public works staff members about the firm's business practices. The award was the second in a week to Tutor-Saliba by the administration of Mayor James K. Hahn. Tutor-Saliba and its president, Ronald N. Tutor, have been financial backers of Hahn's political campaigns.

Mayor James K. Hahn dismissed as nonsensical Wednesday any suggestion that campaign contributions from the firm Tutor-Saliba influenced its selection this week for a $33-million airport construction contract. "That just makes no sense at all," Hahn told radio station KNX. "They were the low bidder. I think that when public funds are being expended, we've got to go with the best person who gives us the best work for the price."

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ruled that construction giant Tutor-Saliba Corp. intentionally withheld and destroyed documents in a landmark case with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority over alleged false claims for payment on the Metro Rail subway project. Judge Joseph Kalin told jurors Tuesday that the only issue left for them to decide is the amount of damages the MTA should receive because of Tutor-Saliba's conduct.

As James K. Hahn moves into his new office at City Hall, he has Ronald N. Tutor, in part, to thank for it. Tutor, president of construction giant Tutor-Saliba Corp., spent $75,000 to help Hahn win the mayor's race. That money went for mailers that backed Hahn as an experienced crime-fighter and branded his rival, Antonio Villaraigosa, as "armed and dangerous." The contractor also hosted two fund-raisers for Hahn during the long mayoral campaign.
