LOS ANGELES (AP) - The chief executives of nearly every major Hollywood studio, TV network and record label have decided to target sexual misconduct and inequity across the industry. They have established a Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, to be chaired by Anita Hill. The group grew out of a meeting called by "Star Wars" producer Kathleen Kennedy and several other prominent women in the entertainment industry.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Washington Post says nine more women allege they were subject to inappropriate sexual conduct or comments by a prominent U.S. appeals court judge. The newspaper reported Friday that the latest allegations against Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals go back decades and include women who met him at events. Kozinski said many of the things being said about him weren't true but that he deeply regrets his unusual sense of humor causing offense.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The U.S. government posted a seventh straight monthly increase in people being arrested or denied entry along the Mexican border, erasing much of the early gains of President Donald Trump's push to strengthen border security. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that denials of entry at official crossings and border arrests reached more than 39,000 in November. That's more than double the nearly 16,000 registered in April.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - People were waiting in a line half a block long outside San Francisco City Hall to view the closed casket of the late Mayor Ed Lee. Several declined to be interviewed Friday, saying they were city or state workers who just wanted to say goodbye to the boss one last time. Randolph Harris, a 56-year-old retired city and county social services worker, says he was "devastated" to learn of the death of Lee, who died Tuesday after collapsing at a supermarket Monday night.
