93 Year old Kirk Kerkorian Settles Long Time Feud with ex-wife Lisa Suit for $10 Million+ in Back Payments!Posted by Rose in Anthony Pellicano, Anthony Pellicano trial, Beverly Hills, Celebrity Trials, Desperate Exes, High Proflie Trials, Hollywood, John J.

Michael Trope has hit the grand slam home run of Family Law. He hit the ball right out of the park with the bases loaded for his client, Lisa Kerkorian. We at DesperateExes.com are betting that this is one of the biggest if not THE biggest child support wins in the history of divorce… …but Lisa K is no fool, she reached out and picked a winner, Michael Trope, of Trope and DeCarolis.
Michael Trope not only negotiated this incredible win, but folks wait till you hear this number, $10,250,000.00 in retroactive child support for Lisa Da K going back to 2002! There is no other lawyer in the United States that could have put a deal like this together, none. …can you say “vindicated?” Whoever found Michael Trope for Ms. Kerkorian should be awarded a trip around the world, all expenses paid!!! Or a Rolex, “The Yacht-Master II” blue bezel and…
…Folks there is always a backside to these stories and this one is no different. It was back in ….2008 when Michael Trope presented his “Motion to set aside” all the nasty stuff that victimized Lisa Kerkorian. As some of you will remember when she had Kolodny and Anteau as her lawyers pretty much all of what she said on the phone was being shared with Kirk Kerkorian’s lawyer Christensen …Anthony Pellicano know who else through wiretaps… …and Terry Christensen lost his ability to practice law…disbarred….
…1. Lisa did not get a fair trial in 2002 because her lawyers were compromised with wire taps…..
2. Michael Trope was asking that everything be set aside as it was an “unfair” trial. And this was the only reasonable thing the court could do…a great position to take.
3. All previous evidence would have to be purged, tossed, thrown out, dumped…why? It was all obtained through illegal conduct…
4. …Kirk Kerkorian crew would not be allowed to present any new evidence and all of the other stuff would be tossed…
…. Now, for the big turn, a change of direction, we got a fresh attitude. I wrote on May 12, 2010 that the Judge orders lotsa bacon for Lisa Da K lawyers.” That day, it is my opinion that Joe Mannis, not being anyone’s fool saw what the exposure could be for his client and began to chart a new course. The actions and comments that day by Judge Steinberg made it clear that it was not going to be business as usual when it came to Lisa Kerkorian and her lawyer, Michael Trope. The other side representing Kirk Kerkorian had committed serious crimes and…
…The deal has been floating around it looks like since July 8, 2010, my birthday! The agreement was finalized and signed… …October 22, 2010. Representing Mr. Kirk Kerkorian is none other than one of the biggest hitters in family law, Joe Mannis. When it comes to seasoned lawyers talk to Joe Mannis. Keep in mind, Mannis represented one of the richest men in the world on this divorce/support issue. Talk about Titans of DIVORCE, here you have two of the best in the game, Michael Trope and Joe Mannis!
In closing, this was some of the best big gun lawyering in Family Law court this year, Michael Trope for Lisa Kerkorian and Joe Mannis for Kirk Kerkorian. …Michael Trope, need I remind everyone that before becoming a lawyer, he was one of the biggest sports agents in the country…”The Art of Negotiating” is alive and well at Trope and DeCarolis.

UPDATE ADDITION: The settlement, which provides $100,000 a month until Kira turns 19 or until she graduates from high school, no longer is a full-time student or no longer is living with her mother full-time. After that, the settlement says, the child support will be reduced to $50,000 a month.
The agreement also provides for Kerkorian to pay expenses including school costs, equestrian expense, clothing, housing, travel, hobbies, automobiles, food, beauty treatments, tutoring, entertainment, parties and pets.
The AP reports that Lisa was married to Kerkorian for only 28 days and admitted that their daughter, Kara was not his biological daughter, but Kerkorian has loved her and been involved in her life as her “dad” since day one.
Wonder how much the Court awarded Michael Trope in attorney fees? Perhaps John J. Nazarian will get that scoop and share it with us as well.
