Pellicano wiretapping case still on


Terry Christensen's attempt to stop the Feb. 27 wiretapping trial against him and his former client, celebrity sleuth Anthony Pellicano, has been denied.

The entertainment lawyer had asked Judge Dale Fischer to halt the trial while he appeals the court's decision to allow taped conversations between he and Pellicano, which he claims are privileged.

Fischer denied that motion Tuesday as well as his request to dismiss the fifth superseding indictment against him due to alleged misconduct by the government in presenting evidence to the grand jury.
