L.A. County Superior Court spokesman placed on indefinite administrative leave

October 27, 2010 |  6:28 pm

The top spokesman for the Los Angeles County Superior Court has been placed on indefinite administrative leave effective Wednesday, court officials said.

Allan Parachini, a former staff writer for The Times and spokesman for the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, has served as the public information officer for the court since 2002.

Deputy public information officer Mary Hearn said she could not give the reason behind the leave because it was a personnel matter.

Hearn said the decision came from the court’s executive office, and that she was made aware of the decision Wednesday afternoon. Parachini could not immediately be reached for comment.
