LEGAL MATTERS
An Australian judge granted actress Nicole Kidman, 37, a restraining order against two photographers after Kidman's bodyguards discovered a wiretapping device near her home in Sydney. Jamie Fawcett, 43, and Ben McDonald, 32, were ordered not to go within 60 feet of the actress's house. "She is grateful that the court order was granted," a rep for Kidman said in a statement. The photographers could not be reached for comment.... On Jan. 26 in Memphis, the district attorney said an indictment against Anthony Anderson (Barbershop), 34, would not be pursued. In October a judge dismissed charges against the actor, who was accused of attacking a 25-year-old extra on the film set of Hustle & Flow. She claimed that the actor sexually assaulted her in a dressing-room trailer. Said a rep for Anderson: "Any time we can get the word out that he was falsely accused, I am happy."

The musician's rep said, "It is unfortunate that Ms. Bell has chosen to follow the increasingly common path of misusing the legal system."
