When Daniel Schaefer took his place in the courtroom for an episode of "Divorce Court," he brought a special realism to his ongoing role in the syndicated television series. The verisimilitude did not stem from any special steps that he took in preparing for the part of a divorce attorney. Schaefer is able to portray a lawyer with such precision because in his non-acting hours, that's exactly what he is. Or rather, exactly who Daniel Rosenberg is--Schaefer is his stage name.

In a court decision that may have a broad impact for the rights of producers and creators in dealing with major studios, Warner Bros. will have to pay television producer John Mantley $1.46 million, plus interest, for fraudulently squeezing him out of a movie project. In a decision revealed this week, a three-judge panel of the California State Court of Appeal upheld a 1989 verdict reached by a Los Angeles Superior Court jury against Warner Bros.

In a closely watched entertainment case, the California Supreme Court ruled Monday that personal managers could be entitled to compensation from their clients even if they procured work for them in violation of the state's Talent Agencies Act. The court said the state's labor commissioner could void manager-talent contracts in their entirety over unlicensed procurement -- or decide to sever unlawful acts and partially enforce the deals.

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury this week awarded a producer nearly $1.6 million in damages after he claimed that Warner Bros. fraudulently squeezed him out of a science-fiction movie project he brought to the studio in 1977. The verdict, if upheld, could provide a new legal avenue for producers, directors and actors to challenge studios that remove them from film projects under widely used "pay-or-play" contract clauses.

Ignorance could prove particularly costly this tax season. A host of new and improved tax deductions and credits kicked in during 2002, and sharp-eyed taxpayers -- or their accountants -- can save significant money on their returns this year. But being tax-savvy is tougher than ever. The nation's already complicated tax code is increasingly freckled with temporary changes, income tests and phaseouts, giving a now-you-see-them-now-you-don't quality to many of the most lucrative tax breaks.
