FORMER CHILD STAR WINS $1.3 MILLION JUDGMENT

Former "Diff'rent Strokes" child star Gary Coleman was awarded nearly $1.3 million by a judge in Santa Monica, Calif., who ruled Coleman's parents and business adviser skimmed some of his earnings. Coleman, 25, had sued his parents, Willie and Edmonia Coleman of Zion, Ill., and his adviser Anita De Thomas in 1989. Superior Court Judge Hiroshi Fujisaki ruled in his favor Tuesday. The former child star has had several legal disputes with his parents.
