When companies tied to the Rev. Pat Robertson and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon did battle over the Nostalgia Network last year, neither got what they wanted. Robertson's International Family Entertainment lost its $40-million bid to expand its media empire, while Moon's Concept Communications subsequently saw Nostalgia dropped by a key New York cable provider. The fates were kinder to Tiger Communications Co., a small investor group led by Los Angeles lawyer Terry Christensen.

Prominent Los Angeles entertainment attorney Terry N. Christensen will be tried separately from private investigator Anthony Pellicano and his other co-defendants, a federal judge ruled Tuesday, just days before Hollywood's big wiretapping trial was set to begin. The decision by U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer removes the only marquee name from the list of defendants in the long-awaited trial, which is slated to start Feb. 27 with jury selection.

The federal judge overseeing the wiretapping and racketeering case against indicted private eye Anthony Pellicano and five co-defendants was urged Monday to set a separate trial for prominent entertainment attorney Terry Christensen. Lawyer Terree Bowers told U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer that his client's alleged role was minuscule, spanning three months -- from March to May 2002 -- of the four-year criminal enterprise charged in the indictment.

One of Los Angeles best-known celebrity attorneys pleaded not guilty Tuesday to federal charges that he paid recently indicted private investigator Anthony Pellicano to wiretap the former wife of billionaire Kirk Kerkorian. The plea by Terry Christensen came on the same day that Los Angeles city officials moved on two fronts to investigate how many LAPD officers might be moonlighting as private eyes or illegally accessing confidential law enforcement records.

As hardball Hollywood lawyers go, Terry N. Christensen ranks in the top tier. For 35 years, the former Marine Corps prosecutor has served as billionaire Kirk Kerkorian's legal muscle in contentious deals involving studios, casinos, airlines and the nation's biggest automakers. According to court records, Christensen once told Kerkorian's former wife that his client would "bury" her financially if she continued with a child support lawsuit.
OPINION
May 7, 2006 | Garry Abrams, GARRY ABRAMS is a columnist and reporter for the Daily Journal.
NOT SO long ago, Bert Fields was, simply, Bert Fields. He was the most famous lawyer in Hollywood, a celebrity in his own right. National magazines and newspapers uncritically profiled him. Variety and the Hollywood Reporter ran his photo when he showed up at red carpet premieres. The New York Post's Page Six noted who attended the dinners he gave at his Manhattan apartment, the abode that gave coastal balance to Fields' other retreat in Malibu. And why not?
