Chris Brown's Lawyer Runs with Rihanna Pic

5/7/2009 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownWe've now obtained the discovery motions filed by Chris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, asking for all written statements and reports from the LAPD regarding the photo of Rihanna posted on TMZ.

Geragos believes the photo was leaked by an LAPD officer -- He writes, "...this highly prejudicial photograph was sold by an LAPD officer to the entertainment website, Thirty Mile Zone (TMZ). The photograph was immediately viewed by hundreds of thousands of viewers and was plastered on every news channel for the following weeks."

Geragos wants notes from the Internal Affairs investigation, along with police officer notes and other documents, stating, "I intend to use such evidence at the preliminary hearing to attack their credibility. The defense intends to prove and argue that the afore-mentioned officers are not credible and that the Court should not believe some of their statements."

Geragos adds, if the court has questions about the credibility of officers in the case, "I believe there is a reasonable likelihood that the case will be dismissed at the preliminary hearing."

Great! I hope it does gets dismissed! The photo shoould have never been leaked! Its injustice at it's finest! TMZ wanted to paint Chris Brown as a animal from the get go! We still dont know what happened! she was not beaten to a pulp(like reported)... that girl had two knots and fat lip! Dont strike unless you want to get strike back! male or female! i'm sick of this story already! It's been one sided since day one...innocent until proven guilty is a joke! America lets the media decide everything for them! we are the only media starved country! i've been around the world and no other country reports more crap than we do!Time to move on TMZ, Rihanna has! she cant sing or dance anyway, she has great stylist and thats it! go back to the islands!

A leaked photo has nothing to do with the events that occurred, or the damage inflicted by Chris Brown. The leaked photo does not affect the evidence, or statements given.

Man, does anyone still doubt that Chris Brown is the biggest d-bag in the world? Of course he would have a high priced lawyer who’s as big of a weasel as he is. He’ll do anything he has to not to take responsibility for his actions. And then people are supposed to actually believe he’s sorry he beat her to a pulp? Nobody’s buying it anymore. Not after this crap. Oh, well...he probably won’t go to jail or even have to pay a fine, but that’s not going to save his career (if you can call it that anymore).
