Oksana Grigorieva Shut Down in Court

10/21/2010 5:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva just lost her motion to keep the L.A. County Sheriff's Department away from the stuff in her computer ... in connection with the extortion investigation.

The judge told Oksana, "For me to begin to limit law enforcement functions in the investigation is premature at this time ...  therefore this motion is denied."

Oksana's team was visibly upset with the decision.

The Sheriff's Department wants full access to O.G.'s computer, to determine if there's evidence she tried to extort Mel Gibson.

The judge complimented Daniel Horowitz on his "tenacity" but the Sheriff's Department was the clear winner.

The Sheriff's Dept. told Judge Gordon it hasn't even begun looking at the material in the computer.  Investigators are trying to convert the material into a viewable format.

I think it's simply a "travesty" that a supremely spoiled sophomoric pack of so-called ACTORS can RULE the film industry. LIKE anybody in THAT CAST has EVER DONE anything (frankly) remarkable in THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

WHO HASN'T DONE THINGS THEY REGRET ?? ... THAT they SHOULD JUDGE MEL GIBSON?

Basically "character" actors, which NEVER had the IMPACT in this industry -- or THE WORLDWIDE audiences Mel has.

The MOVIE going public will rush to see Mel's movies -- regardless. Frankly, Mel's PERFORMANCE is the ANYONE REASON to see that film.

Anyone who could EVER BELIEVE that gold-digger ... doesn't HAVE a brain. He was set-up …. your Hollywood Hypocrites’ are just THAT.

"Oksana Grigorieva suffered a brutal legal blow when a Los Angeles judge rejected her lead attorney's request to practice law in California, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Martin Garbus, the famed defense attorney in the Pentagon Papers case, had filed a pro hac vice motion in court Thursday -- a move that would have admitted the New York-based lawyer to practice in the Californian jurisdiction.

"This is devastating for Oksana because here you have her lead counsel unable to work on the case and speak on her behalf in a court of law," said a source. "It is a major problem for her legal team because she needs a lead counsel that has family law experience."

The judge told Team Oksana they could make a second bid to have Garbus appointed pro hac vice again on November 10 -- a crucial date set down in Grigorieva's bitter legal battle with ex-lover Mel Gibson.

Garbus has defended a host of major names, including Robert Redford, Al Pacino and Spike Lee. Interestingly, it was Grigorieva's former bodyguard, Kristian Herzog, who introduced her to Garbus, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Herzog, a convicted felon who once impersonated a cop with a loaded gun, claimed he was "very intimate" with the Russian musician, 40. But as RadarOnline.com first revealed, Grigorieva insisted "it is a lie... I have never had sex with this man."

As the rest of the people here, I do not know the truth what really happened between the couple (and I believe that privacy is something one has to actually stay private). Yet I'm surprised at people's reactions, whoever it it, a man or a woman, noone ever got a right to abuse the other person. I also believe in a happy marriage a wife would not run claiming her husband hit her, if he would be gentle and nice.. The person's got to be sick in that case. While the whole idea of bitching about a pretty woman (yes, she is) being a golddigger, well.. I don't know, if she fell in love with a celebrity or not (he obviuosly did, otherwise he wouldn't marry!) But that's how it works nowadays. I guess it's just that his love has fainted.. Hmm, would rather care about my own hubby to be happy, and expect the same from him! :)

Praying for you and your family, Mr. Mel Gibson. May God Bless you and protect you always.Also praying for Lucia and Alexander.
Oxsana USE Mel Gibson's money for something important..Buy a soul to replace the soul that you sold to destroy Mel and Timothy and the other men that you have manipulated.

I am in the Wholesale car business, there are a lot of Russian's in this field. There is a reason that I won't do business with Russians or other Eastern Europeans buying and wholesaling. You can't trust them as far as you can throw them. You would have better luck dealing with the Gypsy's.
