Oksana Slaps Former Lawyer with Subpoena

11/9/2010 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva may be playing with fire, because TMZ has learned her lawyers have fired off a subpoena to her former lawyer, who could blow the lid off the case.

TMZ has obtained the subpoena sent to Eric George, who repped Oksana during her mediation with Mel Gibson back in May.  The subpoena requires George to show up for a court hearing on Wednesday.

Up to now, George has been muzzled by the attorney-client privilege, but if Oksana's lawyers plan to ask George about his conversations with Oksana, the privilege would probably be waived.

As TMZ first reported ... Oksana's emails and texts to George and Gibson during the mediation figure prominently in the L.A. County Sheriff's Department extortion investigation.

Sources say George would like very much to testify freely about Oksana and the mediation.  We're guessing Mel's lawyers would like that as well.

No one can be this stupid. This looks planned. She keeps her face in the news and becomes a household name. Mel looks better by default, thereby reviving his career. Neither one loses

Wow, perhaps they just figured since Eric George was going to give a deposition anyway ( a thread a while back) they'd get in there first, but once the client/attorney privilege is waived for OG's lawyer's it has to be for Mel's too and the Sheriff's dept lol!!

Her family court lawyer wants Attorney George to appear at a hearing on the same date that Judge Gordon will decide if
1. Mr. Mel can deduct $60...00/month for rent
2. Attorney Garbus will be granted pro hac vice
????

Right. The WTF-O-Meter is clanging like hell.

What?

TMZ you said a month ago the attorney-client privilege was blown already by Whorowitz threatening George and George wrote that letter to Whorowwitz to cease and desist his rotten comments. George was then interviewed by Mel's lawyewr.

What gives with this 'double' story?

according to EG's letter the atty client privilege was already waived when Horowitz accused him of various and sundry things in a press release. Why is the story changing? In any case, this doesn't make sense but if it makes it easier for Mel, I'm all for it!

What's on the table - the rent, the pro hac vice and isn't custody involved as well or am I misremembering?

Oh man, Fuddy's gonna love this! LMAO

Doesn't it look like Mel's lawyers requested it as his name is under the Plaintiff/Petitioner?

This face with a slapped arse should go away please someone shoot it.

Eric George I believe is a far superior Attorney/Lawyer than Lunatic Horowitz could even wish for in his dreams.

Oinky! She has done some stupid things all along , she does not seem to comprehend she is up **** creek with out a paddle. and going under

This just keeps looking better for Mel on a daily basis.

If the judge had a brain he would already have her arse in jail anyway
