Press closed!'
Among the cases he is
handling, Fink is defending
author Stephen King and
Columbia Pictures Industries
in a copyright infringement
case. An Ann Arbor man is
claiming that King stole his
story to write the movie
"Christine.” Fink also plans
to file copyright violation
claims for Detroit
Renaissance against Sassoon
Inc., which allegedly copied a
logo from a Detroit Grand
Prix poster.
In between briefs and court
appearances, Fink reviews
story proposals for the
newspaper and, if necessary,
reads stories before they are
He juggles several cases at
once, and admits he doesn't
hand over enough work to
other associates.
"One of my problems is that
I don't delegate enough," he
says. "I guess I just want to
make myself feel indispen-
Yet Michael Gruskin, who
has been working under
Fink's supervision since he

joined the firm about a year
ago, disagrees. Fink, he says,
is a great teacher and allows
him to tackle challenging
Fink holds great respect for
one of his law firm's founders,
Jason Honigman, and for U.S.
District Judge Avern Cohn,
who respects his interest in
the media and occasionally
sends him related materials
to read.
"He is very articulate and
very knowledgable," Cohn
says of Fink. "He is well
respected. His skills are
enhanced by the fact that he
has been in newspapers!'
Fink claims he never wants
to retire. He loves to work and
is a self-professed workaholic.
Somehow, he makes it to most
of his children's extracur-
ricular activities. He's the one
in the suit.
He relaxes by staying out of
the office on Saturdays, and
running around town looking
for new electronic gadgets to
purchase. And about once a
week, he catches a movie —
with, of course, a beeper on
his belt. ❑



Israelis Deny Deal With
Romania Over USSR Jews


- -.M/orld's Tory
'Oily at Detroirs . th
'Leader — Milano




FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1988

Jerusalem (JTA) — A story
by the Israeli newspaper
Haaretz that the United
Jewish Appeal would pay the
Romanian government
$80,000 for each Soviet Jew
flown to Israel via Bucharest
was vigorously denied by the
Jewish Agency and the
Foreign Ministry.
The story reported that
Simcha Dinitz, chairman of
the Jewish Agency and World
Zionist Organization Execu-
tive, flew to Romania last
week to wrap up the deal.
Jewish Agency officials con-
firmed that Dinitz was in
Romania but they denied the
allegations by Haaretz.
Israeli sources attributed
the story to certain circles
that want to torpedo the re-
cent Cabinet decision to tight-
en Israeli policy on issuing
visas. It would require Jews
leaving the Soviet Union on
Israeli visas to fly directly to
Aviv after picking up
their visas at the Israeli Em-
bassy in Bucharest.
That decision, which would
deny Israeli visas to Jews who
are not committed to resettl-
ing in Israel, raised a storm
of controversy here and
abroad. Although Dinitz and
Jewish Agency Board of Gov-
ernors Chairman Mendel

Kaplan backed it enthusias-
tically, leading Diaspora
philanthropists are vehe-
mently opposed to the idea.
Meanwhile, represen-
tatives of HIAS, the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society, made
it clear they would oppose any
change in American im-
migration laws that would
give refugee status to Soviet
Jews arriving in Israel.
Under current U.S. laws,
the refugee status accorded
Soviet Jews exempts them
from the quota restrictions
that apply to most foreigners
seeking to immigrate to the
United States. Soviet Jews
compelled to go directly to
Israel presumably would lose
that refugee status and then
be less likely to qualify for
residency in the United
HIAS was reacting to a
report by the syndicated
American columnists Row-
land Evans and Robert Novak
that such changes in the im-
migration laws are under way
in Washington in reaction to
the Israeli Cabinet decision.
In Washington, an official
with the State Department's
Bureau for Refugee Programs
would not comment on the
Evans and Novak report.
