Eugene E. Sax lived here. A native of Chicago educated in Los Angeles and at USC, Sax served on the State Bar of California Board of Governors, was a president of the Lawyers’ Club of Los Angeles, was vice president of the board of directors of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles and was active in the Elks and B’nai B’rith, among other organizations. He was a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge and sought after jurist in the “rent-a-judge” system. In 1980, Sax was hired to settle a dispute between the California Air Resources Board and several oil companies in a case that attracted widespread attention. He ruled that the board must rescind stringent sulfur dioxide and sulfate standards because the state had failed to prove that the standards were necessary to protect the public health. His ruling was later reversed by the California Supreme Court. (Source: Los Angeles Times Obituary, July 6, 1999).
