Creative Management and Creative Artists Agency over CAA’s new role as adviser to the French-owned bank Credit Lyonnais.

Hollywood is hoping JD will reverse its longstanding opposition to fin-syn rules.

In particular, Motion Picture Assn. of America prez Jack Valenti has asked Justice to back off on its call for a lifting of fin-syn-related antitrust consent decrees pending in a Los Angeles federal court.

Bingaman, if confirmed, would also oversee ICM’s request for a probe into whether CAA’s relationship with Credit Lyonnais violates federal antitrust laws.

Bingaman is married to Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.).
