If anyone in this town could push around Mike Ovitz, it might be Ray Kohler. When Kohler talks, the behemoths of show biz listen, even the agent uber alles --or else they'd miss their plane. Because Kohler knows all when it comes to departure times, a key ingredient in his main mission--getting you to New York on time.

The snowball effect of budget cuts in Los Angeles County's court system will result in a $30-billion hit to the local economy over the next four years, according to a study commissioned by the L.A.
