FILE - In this June 19, 2009 file photo, former Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano appears in court in Los Angeles. Four years after Pellicano went to prison for wiretapping phones of the rich and famous on behalf of celebrities and Hollywood heavyweights, his clients face hefty bills for his skullduggery. A Los Angeles County jury awarded nearly $4 million in the first of several lawsuits against Pellicano’s well-heeled clients, in finding that the ex-wife of a billionaire philanthropist invaded the privacy of her three adult step-children and a former personal assistant. The verdict could spell trouble for other former clients who have been sued, such as Paramount studio head Brad Grey and one-time superagent Michael Ovitz. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File)
