A. As I say, it’s a little beyond the call for me to answer questions about bad links on other people’s Web sites. Steve Lopez’s columns are briefly posted for free on The Times Web site. The stories eventually expire, although they are still available for purchase. As for Lopez and the grand jury files, here’s the story: Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley gave Steve Lopez access to the 1949 Los Angeles County Grand Jury files. As I told Lopez before he went over, since he had no idea what he was getting into, most of the files deal with the Leslie Dillon debacle, which is undoubtedly one of the most embarrassing events in the history of the Police Department. That sounds like an understatement, but believe me, it isn’t. For most of its session the 1949 grand jury focused on other matters, but at the end, it looked at the Dillon affair. When it concluded its service, the jury recommended that the issue be taken up by the 1950 grand jury, which took up other questions instead.
