Los Angeles -- A lawyer indicted in a federal wiretapping case was sued Wednesday by an attorney who represented billionaire Kirk Kerkorian's former wife during a child custody battle four years ago.
Stephen Kolodny filed the lawsuit in Superior Court against Terry Christensen, a partner at Christensen, Miller, Fink, Jacobs, Glaser, Weil & Shapiro. The suit accuses Christensen and the law firm of invasion of privacy, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Kolodny is seeking general, special and punitive damages.
Messages left for Christensen and Kolodny's attorney were not immediately returned Wednesday.
Christensen is awaiting trial with six other defendants in a federal wiretapping case. He has pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy and one count of intercepting wire communications. He is free on bond.
Christensen, a longtime attorney for Kerkorian, is accused of paying private investigator Anthony Pellicano at least $100,000 to illegally listen in on conversations involving the mogul's ex-wife, Lisa Bonder Kerkorian, during a court dispute over child support.
Kolodny and Bonder Kerkorian, a former professional tennis player, claims the alleged wiretaps gave her ex-husband an unfair advantage in their child support case.

I think that Hillary needs to be deposed.
Of course the left is A-OK with this. It has nothing to do with national security.
"I don't recall . . . "
"I can't remember . . . "
"It wasn't my fault . . ."
Nobody used Pellicano who didn't need something seriously illegal or immoral done. The guy charged the kind of money he did because he would/could do stuff that nobody else would/could do. He was arrogant to a point that he would literally tell people what he would do to them as an intimidation tool. He just presumed that he would never get caught since he had so many important people involved who wouldn't want to go down with him. None of that saves you when you piss on the Feds.
Lawyers eating their own. damn good start
here is another tip. If you are doing shady things, make sure that your hand grenade collection is stored off premises.
