A judge on Monday postponed for one week the arraignment of a man accused of impersonating an attorney and of bilking thousands of dollars from unsuspecting clients. Harbor Municipal Judge Susanne S. Shaw granted the one-week delay after the defendant said he needed more time to gather the money required to hire a lawyer.

A man awaiting trial in Orange County for allegedly posing as an attorney and taking thousands of dollars from unsuspecting clients appeared twice as a legal counsel in Los Angeles Municipal Court this summer while free on bail, court records show. Interviews and records show that the accused impostor, known most recently as Christopher Kennedy, made the two appearances on behalf of an acquaintence. The first appearance came only 10 days after his release from Orange County jail on June 4.

When the angry letters and calls started last year, Los Angeles lawyer J. Christopher Kennedy said he dismissed them as the misdirected problems of another lawyer who happened to share the same name. But when the complaints kept coming--from desperate clients and indignant lawyers--Kennedy said he began fearing for his own reputation and for that of his law firm, Irell & Manella, which also has offices in Newport Beach.

California parole officer Leonard Hudson has been tracking leads since 1974, searching offices and residences and creating a bulging file of sightings, arrests and disappearances from Hawaii to Canada of the man he calls the "best" he has ever pursued. But the search may at last be over: The man whom Hudson said Tuesday that he is chasing is locked up at Orange County Jail, held on $100,000 bail.

Struggling again to glean the identity of a man accused of fleecing clients of thousands of dollars, a Harbor Municipal Court judge on Monday ordered the defendant to remain in jail. After twice pressing the man for his true name and date of birth, Judge Susanne S. Shaw got this response: "Your honor," said the defendant, "I don't know." The defendant's attorney then added that her client was invoking his constitutional right, under the Fifth Amendment, to avoid self-incrimination.

With his true identity still in dispute, a man accused of impersonating an attorney and stealing thousands of dollars from duped clients was jailed again Monday after a Harbor Municipal Court judge raised his bail. Judge Susanne S. Shaw raised the bail from $20,000 to $100,000 after noting the various aliases the defendant has allegedly used over the past 31 years. Shaw advised the defendant's attorney to bring his birth certificate to court.

A rare, revealing look at how the other half spends--and sometimes loses--its money in the world of contemporary art trading is expected to emerge next week in a Los Angeles criminal courtroom. Doing business in the art trade can be so loose that buyers may seal deals for artworks worth far more than the average person's home with little more than a handshake. They may never set eyes on paintings or sculpture for which they have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars.
