Courtroom Clash Over Oksana's Computer

7/23/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Everyone in court Tuesday wanted to know exactly what was on Oksana Grigorieva's hard drive ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources say Mel Gibson's lawyers wanted Oksana to ante up all the data in her computer -- a computer that contained a wealth of information about Oksana's relationship with Mel -- info that could establish Mel's culpability or innocence in connection with the January 6 blowup. The computer may also contain evidence that could either support or discredit claims that Oksana tried to extort Mel.  And the computer could be relevant in determining whether Oksana had any part in leaking the tapes.

We're told Mel's attorneys wanted full access and Oksana's lawyers wanted access restricted. 

In the end, sources say Judge Scott Gordon ruled that the independent, court-appointed expert could have limited access to the data in Oksana's computer.

In a related move, sources tell us Oksana is now backing up her hard drive, in case the Sheriff's Department seizes her computer as part of its criminal investigation.

I thought from the get-go something is not eight here. There is no fluidity to the exchange.. sounds spliced he doesn't even respond to her accusations half the time...and her? well crap if someone speaks to you like this maniac..you are going to hang up, or let some choice words fly, she is like a stepford wife. WHy is no one else coming forth against Gibson? He is problematic but I think that was her plan...someone hits my kid I AM OTTA THERE!!!

I don't care what happened, I hope this gold digger gets NOTHING! She already got knocked up by Tomothy Dalton, I guess she doesn't get enough money from him so she preyed on Mel an older guy with more money.She's a piece of trash & should be DEPORTED.

Orrr, maybe instead of backing up her hard drive, it's more like replacing the computer with another one so the authorities dont get the damaging evidence against her. Just saying.

I find it strange when I hear the phone statements that in the course of each, neither Mel nor Oksana interrupts the other. That isn't the way most conversaqtions go. Like when Oksana is making her case about Mel hitting her, and needing medication, he doesn't interrupt at all...sounds like he has a paragraph then she has one...and during the whole time, neither innterrupts. Wonder if she or Radar made some changes?
