Brown Signs 'Gun Restraining Order' Bill
Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a groundbreaking new gun law that will allow family members to ask a judge to take guns away from mentally unstable relatives. It's a direct response to this year's Isla Vista shootings near the campus of UC Santa Barbara.
Stockton Bankruptcy Ruling Could Remove CalPERS Pension Protections
When a California city goes bankrupt, its employees' pensions are off limits to creditors. But a federal judge overseeing Stockton's bankruptcy could upset that standard. Chief Judge Christopher Klein is expected to rule Wednesday on whether Stockton's pension debt can be treated like any other debt on the city's books. If Judge Klein decides it can, public employees' pensions in the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) could become vulnerable to creditors.
