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.

Yeah.. so who will Mel walk down the red carpet with for The Beaver premier? I hope it's either Robyn or someone young with a symmetrical face. I still haven't recovered from the Picasso face/Ox red carpet/Edge of Darkness experience Bye Bye Ox. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

So I'm right in the middle of my happy dance when the last bit caught me. Shortly? How shortly? I'm going to be away from tomorrow until Monday.

There will be no arresting the Miss Oksana unless the Curious is here to read and weep with joy!

Babushka, I think he's ticked off enough to want to take her down a peg, but not lose his license. He has to tell the truth, it's part of the attorney oath. He can withhold information, but he can't lie or break the atty/client confidentiality. However, if she keeps talking about what happened in the mediation, I think someone mentioned that it frees him to speak about what happened. Did George imply that in his letter to Horowitz? I know it scared Horowitz and made him backpedal in a hurry and apologize to George. How could Horowitz say to George that there was no insult intended toward George when Horowitz keeps harping that the entire mediation conducted by George was improper?

OMG, someone smack me, I totally forgot about the "Rear" love. Dammut, shell, ya beat me to it.

Tammy, I have a large gay community around me that uses that term all the time. If you google bareback sex it comes up with Porn sites for gays (Yes, I am ashamed, I googled it to see if it was used by the hetero community). I hope my husband doesn't see that link in my last page visited LOL.
