The San Diego Union-Tribune reviewed the documents and found the extremist group visited local colleges at least a dozen times in recent years.

The city of San Diego is court-ordered to pay thousands of city workers who did not receive pension plans when they were hired.

A judge ruled the measure was placed on the ballot illegally.
