The Pellicano Verdict: Cue The Civil Suits

Pellicano Those still obsessed with convicted Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano have not only the Terry Christensen trial to look forward to, but also many civil suits to follow.

"The Pellicano saga is far from over," says Brian Kabateck, the court-appointed lead counsel for the civil litigation arising from Pellicano's activities. "While there is satisfaction in seeing him found guilty for his crimes, we look forward to the civil process helping find justice for his victims and punishment for those who aided Pellicano's conspiracy but escaped prosecution in the criminal courts."

Kabateck is involved in at least four cases at the moment. His big-ticket litigation will be the class action suit against AT&T. "Pellicano could not have engaged in such widespread and effective wiretapping without the complicity of AT&T," he says.

He's also representing actor Keith Carradine in a suit against AT&T, his ex-wife and Pellicano; Donna Dubrow against Pellicano and her ex-husband director John McTiernan; and Erin Finn against Pellicano and ex-boyfriend Robert Pfeifer, former president of Disney-owned Hollywood Records.
