  • Law enforcement has shut down Steven Seagal's "Lawman" reality show after a former model sued him for allegedly attempting to make her his "sex toy." [THR]
  • Charlie Sheen's lawyers are attempting to suppress incriminating statements made by the actor on grounds that cops failed to read him his Miranda rights. [TMZ] 
  • Pennsylvania regulators have determined that TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8" should have obtained child-labor permits, but no action will be taken if a portion of the canceled show's proceeds are put in a trust fund for the children. [AP] 
  • Heidi Montag says she's going to sue "The Hills" creator Adam DiVello. [L&S]
  • A controversy over whether public universities have a legal duty to reveal contracts with non-disclosure provisions took a strange twist recently. Students at a California state university where Sarah Palin is scheduled to speak fished the contract for her appearance out of a trash bin. "This is our little Watergate in the state of California," said a state senator.
