Judge denies L.A. Coliseum bid to bar reporters from deposition

A judge ruled that The Times could not be stopped from re­port­ing on testi­mony from the top man­ager of the Los Angeles Me­mori­al Coli­seum in a de­pos­ition for an open-gov­ern­ment law­suit.
Los Angeles Su­per­i­or Court Judge Lu­is A. Lav­in said that in ask­ing the court to deny Times re­port­ers ac­cess to the testi­mony and a pro­hib­i­tion against art­icles about it, the com­mis­sion sought “es­sen­tially a gag or­der.”
