Calif. AG wants outside monitor for Bell

BELL, Calif. The attorney general's office told the Los Angeles Times it intends to go to court to make it happen.

School districts have gone into receivership, but /*Bell*/ might be the first /*California*/ city to do so.

Talks on oversight broke down when the two sides couldn't come to an agreement that the state felt guaranteed accountability and transparency.

Eight former and current Bell officials face criminal charges for mishandling millions of dollars in city funds.
