LAPePA!U!N0RLO5i I r5cEREArf,THpAii Dodcls SetFast Trial In Action Against Pearson WASHINGTON (UPD. Senator Thomas J. Dodd, (D-Conn.) announced today his attorney had dropped all but four of his com-, plaints in the $5 million conspiracy and libel suit against columnists Jack Anderson and Drew Pearson. ! . A news release from Dodd's office also said Atty. John. F. Sonnett, had requested the U. S. District Court "to take measures which would insure a trial at the earliest possible date." .. ' The revised complaint against Pearson and Anderson specifically asked that the case be assigned to a single judge in federal court "so as to expedite pre-trial proceedings" and let the case go to trial by July "or as soon' thereafter as possible." . 1 SINGLE CLAIM It also would restrict the case to a single claim of conspiracy and three specific claims of libel dealing with accusations made against Dodd in connection with his handling of matters relating to West Germany and Katanga. The original Dodd complaint cited 14 specific causes of action because of various charges the columnists made against the senator. In an affidavit accompanying the revised complaint, Sonnett said, "protracted pre-trial proceedings in the suit would subject Sen. Dodd to continued assault in Pearson's col- ! umn." ' The development came as Dodd's lawyers . I planned to take the first of a series of deposi-Mions in the suit. V r . . .. Under today's request, eliminated from the libel suit would be Pearson's charges relating to Dodd's use of a car loaned by a Connecticut firm and charges , he accepted gifts and favors and pocketed . campaign contributions for his own use.' v Bar Owner Fined For Discrimination CLEVELAND (UPI) - Yankee Bar pro-, -prietor John Socotch . was convicted Wednes- day of discrimination between sexes because he admitted women free to a go-go dance ' but charged men admission. - Municipal Judge Joseph Stears fined 'So- cotch, 42, Strongsville, $50 and costs and ' granted him until Sept. 15 to decide whether to seek a new trial or appeal the case. : tThe prosecution contended Socotch had advertised that his bar would admit women free on Thursday nights.
