Christy out at Reporter; SAG probe continuing

Federal grand jury also investigating columnist

HOLLYWOOD — Columnist George Christy has ankled the Hollywood Reporter.

Christy, who has penned the paper’s Great Life column since 1975, was suspended in May after the Screen Actors Guild launched an investigation into allegations that Christy defrauded its Pension and Health Plans

He is alleged to have used phony acting credits to claim eligibility for the SAG plans, and to have taken free office space from the Motion Picture Corp. of America, a film company that’s also named in SAG’s audit of Christy.

Bruce Dow, chief administrator of the SAG-industry pension and health plan, said the investigation had not been completed. He had no further comment.

A federal grand jury is also investigating Christy but has yet to indict him.

Despite his suspension, Christy has remained highly visible around town, attending premieres and other movie events.

A spokesperson for Christy said that under the terms of his settlement with the Reporter, the columnist couldn’t comment on his resignation.
