Default judgment in Cohen case

March 04, 2006|From Associated Press

Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen may never see the $9.5 million a court ordered his former business manager to pay after she failed to respond to allegations of stealing from his retirement savings, Cohen's attorney said.

An L.A. Superior Court judge granted the 71-year-old Cohen, known for reflective songs such as "Suzanne," a default judgment Monday. He claimed in a lawsuit that Kelley Lynch siphoned $5 million from his personal accounts and investments, leaving him about $150,000.

Scott Edelman, Cohen's attorney, said he doesn't know what Lynch did with the money, nor does he know where she lives or how to contact her.



Oh, the horror: The script isn't finished yet but no matter: Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures said Friday that "Saw III" will be in theaters Oct. 27, ensuring "that gore becomes every bit as much a Halloween staple as ghosts, goblins and candy corn."

Bidding adieu: "Charmed," the supernatural series that stars Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs, will end in May after eight seasons, the WB network said Friday.
