M. Ross Bigelow,

77, a retired California Superior Court judge who presided over the 1974 trial of two Symbionese Liberation Army members, died Tuesday in Los Angeles of congestive heart failure.

Appointed to municipal court in 1969 by then-Gov. Ronald Reagan, Mr. Bigelow began his 15-year career as a Superior Court judge in 1973.

His most highly publicized case was the trial of SLA members Russell Little and Joseph Remiro on charges of the attempted murder of a policeman, assault and possession of explosives after a 1974 shootout. The jury acquitted Mr. Little, and Mr. Bigelow declared a mistrial in Mr. Remiro's case after the jury could not reach a verdict.

Andrew Forge,

76, a British-born painter and teacher at the Yale School of Art, died Wednesday in New Milford, Conn.

Mr. Forge, who studied with William Coldstream at the Chamberwell School of Art in London, painted abstract pieces that emphasized the sensory effects of color. In his paintings, which recalled the work of Claude Monet and expressionist Mark Rothko, he used tiny dots and short dashes of paint in patterns that occasionally hinted at landscapes and figures.

Mr. Forge taught for 30 years at the New York Studio School.
