Mel Gibson's Deposition and the Phantom Fist

11/3/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva's lawyer accused Mel Gibson during his deposition Monday of clenching his fist ... but the judge ruled there was absolutely no proof it happened.

Here's what we know ... The deposition got so contentious and loud among the lawyers ... people in the office building heard the noise.  Sources say at one point, Oksana's lawyer, Daniel Horowitz, accused Mel of winking at him -- a comment the judge promptly struck from the record.

Horowitz then said on the record ... he believed Mel clenched his left fist.  Again, the judge struck the comment from the record.

What's interesting ... the proof is in the video, which was rolling during the whole depo.  But as far as we know, there's no evidence Mel clenched it.

Horrorwitz: Judge judge Mel just said he framed Scott Dyleski to kill Pamela so I can marry Valerie and I'll tell you the details.

AS MUCH AS THE RUSSIAN gold=digger is a BALD-FACED LIAR ... EVEN WORSE IS HER AMBULANCE CHASER "counseL" whore-a-houd-itz. EVERYBODY in that room knows THAT CREEP FABRICATED every lie he TOLD.

trust the communie tramp to LIE WITH PIGS. NOTHING she has said -- OR HER "bad-faith mouth piece" is ever truth. The ecre-ment continues to seep DOWN-stairs.

The real presiding judge in their custody action isn't going to let "CRAP" the two of them is pulling -- go on much longer.

wondering    

a wink, a clench, a twitch, a flex, a cough, a yawn, a shift in the seat, a head tilt, a foot moves slightly, an itch, a scratch, a straightening of the tie, Horowitz, get a grip, quit grasping at straws and invisible gnats in the air.....


or if you plan on more of this at least have the courtesy of wearing proper clown make-up when entering the deposition.....

Thank God nobody I deposed ever winked at me. I've never seen someone so arrogant and flip in my entire life. Roll back the damn depo tape and take a look, judge. Is it likely a man who screams at the top of his lungs, spits and growls over the phone clenches his fist at a deposition? YOU BET! It's all typical for Mel Gibson in the last 40 years. He's not some cream puff. He is completely out of control but does have the bank to make it all less or even disappear if he chooses. Roll back the tape, judge. Just for your own interest to know what kind of man you are dealing with here. He's disgusting.

Your a lawyer? If you read this comment

The judge is not going to rule against some one with no evidence. That is something you as a lawyer should know. They probaly did roll the tape back but again the judge can't rule on speculation that some one might have done something. As for winking at horrorwitz, this is a deposition NOT primary school to me this is just unprofessional

@ Clare

JLS likes to pretend she is a lawyer. Ridiculous statements she makes such the one you quoted prove she is anything but.

It will be interesting to know what other professional tricks they pulled.
hahaha
Oksana knows he has a temper and thought will give it another goading. I wink at her.
What could Horrowitz be possibly implying by saying Mel winked at him? That Mel was signaling he was lying or not taking it seriously? Or did he think Mel fancied him?

Have lost all respect for Horowitz. He's looking for his 15 min. of fame.
