Sheriff's Dept. Interviews Oksana's Mediation Lawyer

10/6/2010 8:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... L.A. County Sheriff's investigators have just interviewed the lawyer who mediated Oksana Grigorieva's case with Mel Gibson, in connection with the extortion investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... two investigators went to the law offices of Eric George, a well-known L.A. attorney.  As TMZ has reported, the Sheriff's investigators are looking into whether Oksana tried to extort $15 million from Mel Gibson, in return for the infamous audio tapes.  TMZ has already posted the signed agreement that Oksana later disavowed.

Our law enforcement sources say ... among the topics investigators covered:

-- How involved Oksana was in the mediation
-- How involved she was in the money discussions
-- Why she ultimately rejected the agreement she signed

In addition to meeting with George, investigators met with his law partner, Sonia Lee, who was also involved in the mediation.

Our law enforcement sources say the extortion file should go to the L.A. County District Attorney shortly.  The D.A. will make simultaneous decisions on whether to prosecute Mel for domestic violence and Oksana for extortion.

I don’t know about the law, but morally (IMO) abuse and bigotry is worse than gold digging and lying.

Thank Jesus for letting us know that. We were wondering what was worse - bigotry or gold-digging -- and lo and behold you appear in TMZ to let us know. Radar won't be happy you came here first Jesus but... you of all people must know Radar has lost all credibility. Amen.

Horowitz opened the door to the cir***stances surrounding the mediation with his ill-conceived suggestion that his "client" was intimidated, etc.

Within those boundaries, I think Eric George has a lot to say. Remember, somebody was asked on a scale of 1-10 how involved was his client, and the answer was 11!!!!

Oxy, hear that whistle blowing? It's the gravy train getting ready to leave the station.

i hope they lock this broad up so she can go away. i smelled a rat when all the audio was being released. not only that they were released but how they were released. to maximize the damage to mel. not to say that hes an angel, but come on. shes a common gold digger & not at all innocent in the matter. in my eyes shes just as bad as mel, if not worse. why doesn't this woman get a damn job instead of living off of these gossip magazines? what a nightmare.

She's defintely worse, Al. I think this because we all knew back in 2006 that Mel had a temper, so she did too when she got involved with him. She got into this will full disclosure! Then she records and releases tapes of his exercising the tenmper the whole world knew he had in an effort to destroy him. Biotch is nasty, biotch is cruel and biotch needs to go down. I also think that she CHOSE to have a child with him (ya'll know when a woman gets pregnant, whether the child is kept or aborted is COMPLETELY up to her), so she clearly wanted to to make him her baby's father. She then tries to strip him of his 50% paternal right to get more money for child support and interferes with his FIRST father's day with his daughter. Biotch is nasty, biotch is cruel and biotch needs to go down.

Say it with me everyone: BIOTCH IS NASTY, BIOTCH IS CRUEL AND BIOTCH NEED TO GO DOWN!!!

Tell us Mr. George, did Ok$ana say
"I don't want Mel's money.
Just his soul, since I don't have one"

Is it not enough Oksana by now ?

who does really care about this ugly bitch anymore ?

same old story from the start. Old man gets girl pregnant, really believes, she loves him, leaves wife and family and gets burned, as soon as possible by same girl.

Is there really nothing else to talk about on your website than this ?

I know MG is on your blacklist for antisemitic comments, but please find something else to gossip about.

Is this all coincidence? Talk about the L.A. Sherriff's department running over to Eric George on the heels of this press release for people magazine that quick. ROFLMAO. Me thinks someone in the department got a heads up early today with the article and that was there smoking gun to hit the lawyers office.

Amin! And please pass the koolaid. I have a low-blood-koolaid level and I'm starting to waver.

For the record @goldenopal: The case law, and the courts disagree with you. And that's all that matters in this case. As for moral turpitude, that is decided by God on an unrevealed date, at an undisclosed location, in the future. Please put on your tin-foil hat, and keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
