Civil Rights Attorney. A native of Los Angeles, California, Lomax began practicing law in the 1970s and rose to prominence as a civil rights lawyer and later became a confidante of Mayor Tom Bradley. She served as a Police Commissioner President overseeing the Los Angeles Police Department in the early 1990s, a period that included the beating of Rodney King by police officers. She became one of the first to demand the resignation of then Police Chief Daryl Gates, a controversial position that won her both friends and enemies. Lomax died September 10, 2006 following a car accident at the age of 56.
