COURT DOCKET

<i> Arts and entertainment reports from The Times, national and international news services and the nation's press</i>

Actress Lynn Redgrave’s daughter Annabel is 8 now, but her mother and father, John Clark, are still claiming that Redgrave had the right to breast-feed her while on the job. The Clark-Redgrave crew was at the posh St. James’ Club in West Hollywood on Wednesday to update the media on the progess of their dispute with MCA/Universal over Redgrave’s 1981 firing from the “House Calls” TV series. (The dispute, which has been in and out of courts ever since, revolves around counterclaims that Redgrave was forced to leave the show because she insisted on breast-feeding infant Annabel on the set.) One court has ruled that the dispute has been settled, but the state Supreme Court is now weighing the case. She’s asking for about $500,000 in attorneys fees and a written apology published in the Hollywood trade papers. “This is our last chance,” Redgrave said. “We want to prove this is a matter of public interest . . . . more a matter of principle than money.”
