    It's a Pirate's View for Depp

    The `Caribbean' star has W. Hollywood officials on legal gangplank over plans for a retail project he says would ruin one of the vistas at his estate.

    Actor Johnny Depp sometimes takes a dim view of American politics. But now he's taking an even dimmer view of West Hollywood politicians.

    The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star is in a legal sword fight with city officials who have authorized a Sunset Strip construction project that he insists would ruin a scenic view from an area of his $5.4-million Hollywood Hills property.

    The megastar contends in a lawsuit that the city violated environmental-quality laws by approving development of retail shops, a restaurant and a parking structure on a lot beneath his gated, 2 1/2 -acre Sweetzer Avenue estate.
