Closing arguments in a $20-million lawsuit against Toyota Motor Corp. started Monday with attorneys painting widely different portraits of a horrific 2009 wreck that killed an Upland woman. A Los Angeles County Superior Court jury will decide whether Toyota was negligent by not including a particular safety device on Noriko Uno's 2006 Camry, or whether the crash resulted from her poor driving. Uno's car sped to 100 mph before hitting a telephone pole and a tree. The case, expected to go to the jury Tuesday afternoon, will set the direction for hundreds of similar lawsuits against the automaker over incidents of unintended acceleration.

Barking and baying up a storm, Uno lived up to his name Tuesday night by becoming the first beagle to win best in show at the Westminster Kennel Club. The nation's new top dog was clearly the crowd favorite. Uno got right into the act, jumping up on handler Aaron Wilkerson and confirming his other title: noisiest in show. The only dog consistently listed among America's most popular breeds for nearly 100 years, a beagle had never won in the 100 times Westminster picked a winner.

Taking the stand in a $20-million product liability lawsuit, the top U.S. executive for Toyota Motor Corp. deflected questions on the technical details of his company's cars and the costs of installing a safety system that plaintiffs contend could have saved a life. James Lentz testified Tuesday in a Los Angeles County Superior Court, where the automaker is defending itself against a suit alleging it caused the death of Noriko Uno. Uno's heirs say her Toyota Camry unexpectedly sped to 100 mph and crashed on an Upland street in 2009.

Japanese Prime Minister Sosuke Uno expressed shock today at the resounding defeat of his ruling Liberal Democratic Party by a Socialist candidate for a seat in the Upper House of Japan's Parliament. "We didn't anticipate that we would lose that badly," Uno told a news conference. "To have lost that badly we have to think seriously about it and to examine why it happened." The by-election Sunday was seen as a harbinger of Upper House elections on July 23. Analysts, citing allegations that Uno was involved in extramarital relationships, said he was partly responsible for the victory by Japan Socialist Party candidate Kinuko Ofuchi, a woman, in rural Niigata prefecture, a traditional LDP stronghold north of Tokyo.

Japanese Prime Minister Sosuke Uno is facing rising public disapproval in the capital for his alleged role in a sex scandal, an opinion poll released Thursday indicates. Support for Uno's administration was as low as 10% in a survey of Tokyo residents, while as many as 70% of respondents did not approve of his Cabinet, according to Kyodo News Service, which conducted the poll. Kyodo's telephone survey of 500 eligible voters also showed a serious erosion of support for the ruling Liberal Democratic Party in next Sunday's Tokyo metropolitan election, which is expected to be a benchmark for national voting patterns following the convulsions of the Recruit bribery scandal that toppled the government of Noboru Takeshita, Uno's predecessor.

Japanese Prime Minister Sosuke Uno told the Diet (Parliament) today that trade problems with the United States are "becoming more serious every day" and warned his nation to prepare for "some pain and hardship" in rectifying economic practices that Washington says are unfair. Uno, who succeeded Noboru Takeshita last Friday after Japan's worst postwar political scandal, made the declaration in his first policy speech to both houses of the legislature but did not specify what action might be taken.

In my position as a Municipal Court judge handling criminal cases, I daily see the unfortunate effects inadequate resources for education, counseling and sports activities have on our city's youth. Two groups of concerned citizens, the United Neighborhood Organization (UNO) and the South Central Organizing Committee (SCOC), have joined in an effort to reduce crime in their areas by encouraging law enforcement agencies to focus on hard-core crime sources, and through the UNO/SCOC Olympic Legacy Program providing much needed counseling, sports and arts activities for local youngsters.

Arturo Cruz, the former Sandinista official whom the United States wanted to remain part of the Nicaraguan contras' leadership, announced his resignation Monday. Cruz arrived at the Foreign Ministry here for a 4 p.m. meeting and brushed past reporters waiting for him because of reports from members of his family that he was quitting as one of the three directors of the United Nicaraguan Opposition, the contras' umbrella organization.

Toyota Motor Corp. has battled hundreds of lawsuits in recent years related to sudden acceleration. But a landmark trial began Thursday with opening statements in a Los Angeles County Superior Court. Other litigation has focused on whether there is an electronic defect that triggers unexpected acceleration in some Toyota cars. But Garo Mardirossian - the attorney representing the heirs of a woman who was killed when her Toyota Camry unexpectedly sped to 100 mph - is skipping that argument entirely.

Few places embody punk rock ideals less than Las Vegas, the setting for Green Day singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's onstage tantrum on Friday night. And few Green Day albums embody the punk ideal less than "¡Uno!," the band's eighth studio album. Both highlight the challenges of turning rebellion into money. Sponsored by corporate radio monolith Clear Channel, the Vegas event was called the iHeartRadio Music Festival, and took place at the MGM Grand Hotel. The annual festival, now in its third year, is designed to draw attention to the corporation's I Heart Radio smartphone application.

Out-of-wedlock mothers who, by their very existence, seem to offend inconspicuous vice presidents, if given the chance, would probably not make single parenthood or abortion their first choice.

The pizza-making business has been a little shaky since the Jan. 17 quake, Uno pizzeria manager Harry Batt said. Located just around the corner from the now-demolished Bullock's department store at Northridge Fashion Center, Batt's restaurant is an island in a sea of quake rebuilding. It's the only store connected to the mall that is open, but it no longer has an adjacent mall to lure customers. But business has been increasing steadily, Batt said.
