Sources tell us Oksana has hired Martin Garbus and Daniel Horowitz  ... two formidable lawyers who have been around the block in celebrity cases. Garbus has defended Robert Redford, Al Pacino, and Spike Lee -- and both he and Horowitz rank among America's top litigators.

We're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent almost all things Oksana -- they will be her reps in connection with the domestic violence investigation as well as the extortion probe.

In addition to the civil suit, we're told Garbus and Horowitz will represent Oksana in her music career -- specifically, they will challenge Gibson, who they claim is blocking the release of Oksana's music.

As for the civil battery case against Gibson -- sources tell us the plan is to file it by the end of the year.

@Curious Lol. I said before…OG is the gift that keeps on giving. Unbelievable.

@Dianne Quick hit as in settlement. Mel could just dig his heels in on this one, and he should. Now there is a new legal team that has to be brought up to speed on everything. This will take up even more time.

@kpacota
I think you are right! They come out with a PR spin that they are going to sue Mel, as a distraction, when their real purpose is to defend her. The civil suit is a smokescreen!
As for where she is getting the money: I believe there are powerful interests who would like to harm Mel... the man who made The Passion of the Christ.

The worst part of all of this is :

THIS WOMAN is using the court system for money...wasting our tax dollars for her gain. Wasting the family court time that could go to a mother who has yet to get a dime for her children and is barely making ends meet.

I am not sure who is worst, her or the lousy lawyers representing her.

..............................

Sandy that is so true. It seems she doesn't ...CARE.. if a child goes without because of the backlog she will create in the courts...just so long as she gets her unlimited supply of money to go endlessly shopping on Rodeo drive for the rest of her life! (you notice I said her...life ..not poor Lucie's)

EXCLUSIVE???????

How is this exclusive?

Just another slow day in TMZ land?

It's no surprise this cow was going to sue Mel. I guess we should thank TMZ for giving this cow so much attention she felt she had enough ammo to sue Mel and win?

I bet now that this *exclusive* news broke here *scoff* TMZ will pimp her cause even more.

However or whatever she feels entitled to won't matter. There won't be any court dates until the investigations against her are finished first.

Hmm    

Oksana is a very naive and stupid girl who is going to get burned for trying to smear Mel Gibson. Not that the guy is a saint but those tapes were so hokie and doctored and her whole story wreaks of gimme gimme more. Perhaps she should lie low and leave the hiring and firing to someone smarter, like Donald Trump.
I'm just saying....

So, what have we learned today?

We've got Miss Oksana firing all her old legal team to take up these guys and Trope.

Miss Oksana intends to sue Mr. Mel every which way but loose.

Attorney George will be meeting with the Sheriff's office.

Miss Violet is now claiming Miss Oksana's bodyguard, on behalf of Miss Oksana, bribed her. Why is Mrs. Gloria not involved with this story?

Pass the cheese curls.

Lol. Which of the "3 Sorns" is this, I wonder?

Posted at 11:10 AM on Sep 16, 2010 by Genna
--------------------------------------

It could be "veiled threat Oksana is going to sue you for talking sh.it about her Sorn," or it could be "lovesick I fantasize about wanting to clean Ox's carpet Sorn."

I just don't know anymore. I don't care as long as long as it isn't "porn talk" Sorn...
