L.A. Now Live: Chat with Times reporters about Trutanich, election

April 9, 2012 | 10:18 pm

Times reporter Jack Leonard will be joining us on L.A. Now Live to chat about a judge's decision not to allow City Atty. Carmen Trutanich to call himself "Los Angeles chief prosecutor" on the June election ballot.

Trutanich is running for district attorney in what is shaping up to be a contentious battle to replace Steve Cooley. The ruling sided with one of Trutanich's main rivals in the race for district attorney, Alan Jackson.

The chat will begin at 9 a.m. at www.latimes.com/lanow. If you have questions, you can submit them by hitting the comment button above -- or by joining us live during the chat.

Reporter Jason Song will also be on to discuss the war chest some of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors are amassing despite running with little, if any, competition.

As always, we'll have a roundup of local headlines with crime reporter Andrew Blankstein.
