    The Associated Press reports that record producer Phil Spector won't be transported from prison to testify that he is entitled to recoup part of a $1 million retainer paid to attorney Robert Shapiro.

    Spector will not appear in the Los Angeles courtroom for a civil trial scheduled to begin March 7th.

    Here's the details: Spector sued Shapiro in December 2007, claiming the legal eagle who once represented OJ Simpson took advantage of him after he was arrested in 2003 for shooting a woman at his mansion. After two trials, Spector was convicted of second-degree murder.

    Shapiro's attorneys want to directly cross-examine Spector, but the jury will have to rely on a videotaped deposition.
