Judge Rejects Gag Order in Mel Gibson Case

11/10/2010 9:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's lawyers wanted everyone in the custody war to shut up or else ... but the judge has rejected issuing a gag order ... TMZ has learned.

Mel Gibson Gag Order:
Sources tell TMZ ... Oksana Grigorieva's lawyers did not want a gag order, partly because other people -- including members of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department -- were talking about the case and impacting Oksana's public profile.  In the end, Judge Gordon did not see it fit to issue a gag order.

We're also told both Mel and Oksana testified today about the custody arrangement.  Oksana is asking the judge to deny Mel all overnight visits, on grounds Mel's nanny allegedly cares for the baby and she needs full-time parenting ... also she believes Mel is a danger to Lucia.  But Mel is sticking by the tried-and-true formula -- he's already successfully raised 7 kids.

We're told the judge did not rule on whether to alter any of the custody/visitation arrangements.

111010_oksana_exit_videoThe judge did settle one issue -- that Oksana will get $20,000 a month in child support and can live rent free -- meaning Mel can't deduct rent from the $20k.

what a mess    

this does make sense to a degree. The LAPD have made a number of comments that are not appropriate. REGARDLESS of the situation being investigated the police SHOULD NOT SPEAK to the press.

LAPD (Twit-more?) has done it on more the on occasion. He blew it (but so did Oksana - literally and figuratively speaking)

No gag order, which means we will continue to hear even more Mel bashing, and personal/private disclosures about Mel Gibson.
Sad.

All this woman does is come up with accusation after accusation after accusation. She has already proven herself to be a liar and she may end up being charged for extortion. Yes Mel has raised 7 kids, none have ever been in trouble and he was married and never laid a hand on his wife so why would he all of a sudden be a danger and a bad parent to a child and why would he hit Okasana? It has also been proven that the tapes Okasana gave to police were tampered with.

This woman will lie about anything to get money , she is a gold digger and an extortionist and all she is doing is digging a big hole for herself and I really do think in the end Mel is going to end up with Lucia and Okasana is going to end up in jail for extortion

The only one making you look like a gold digging fool is yourself Okscammer. Mel will comeback in the eyes and hearts of the public, you however, will always be perceived as the trash you are.

So I guess this means Oksana ... will be breaking her silence ... again some time soon.

I know Mel is a private person ... but maybe just this once he let us in on some of the stuff OG has pulled around him.

What a joke, she is worried about impacting her public profile.
Earth to OG, your negative public profile is something of your own doing!

The judge order Mel to pay $60...,000 today in back child support, plus no deduction for the housing (the $6K he wanted deducted from child support) Mel also has to pay the $20k a month. Plus there is no gag order, as mentioned above. So, I guess Oksana won today as far as money is concerned. Although she did say it wasn't about the money didn't she?
The visitation issues have been tabled till maybe next year 2011. So, it was all about the money today.

But this says that the judge has not ruled on visitation or child support. The "other" site say otherwise....so which is it?

TMZ is more reliable than ROL. ROL is probably just lying as usual.

Oh good! The Sheriff's can talk about what they're finding on her computer now! AWESOME

The judge is the one who supposedly issued the gag order in the first place, now he lifts it when Mel's lawyers ask that Oksana comply like Mel has???

Dirty judge.
