L.A. city attorney candidates hold spirited debate

April 16, 2009 |  8:56 am

City attorney candidate Jack Weiss accused rival Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich of representing a "moral sinkhole" of private clients in a debate Wednesday night, while the San Pedro attorney questioned what he called Weiss' "failed record," and whether he had the legal experience for the job.

The debate, which included topics such as the city's billboard regulations and morale in the city attorney's office, was the second in less than two weeks for the candidates, who face a runoff election May 19.

The Times has more on the debate by the city attorney candidates.
