No Body Shows Up for Ed/Merv Court Case

10/7/2009 1:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Merv griffin A court case between two big celebrities was dismissed today because no one showed up for the hearing ...

... the case: Merv Griffin vs Ed McMahon.

The Griffin Group
sued Ed and his wife Pamela last year -- claiming a $100,000 loan Merv gave Ed in 2005 was never repaid.

Since no one showed up to court in Santa Monica yesterday for either side, the case was tossed out ... so it looks like this one is gonna have to be settled in the Highest of Courts.

I do think it's kind of interesting that McMahon borrowed from Merv. Hearing back then of his troubles, I wondered if Johnny Carson's widow or kids did anything to help; and if not, why they didn't.

Of course, TMZ writers assume that "everyone" knows that both of them are dead, or at least, that this suit was filed last year and Ed died this past summer.

I think that if Denny Terrio was testifying, Merv's corpse would surely have clawed it's way out to be there.

Um, they're both dead and you might wanna mention that since it would be LAWYERS for either side who would show or not. Duh, TMZ! Shoddy reporting-seems ur writers are seriously hit or miss.

Randy Quaid, Jane Adams and now this in the last week. Moral of the story : risky when loaning money to celebs. Seems to happen all the time.

Look.......ED blew it by insisting on having a younger woman. WOMEN spent all his money on stoooopid investments. It's hard enough to fix stoooopid but desperate is even worse.
Why SHOULD anyone come to his aid after his wives cost him MILLONS?
