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.

Here is what I'm thinking:

This is a NO WIN for MEL, I would tell MEL to give FULL Custody to Oskana , and NEVER see her again or the baby (for a few years). Wait until this MEDIA circus dies down and the DV and extortion thing is in the past.

Your lawyers want you to fight, yeah, they are taking your money, and part of the reason it drags on and on. They make a ton of money from you as does oskana's lawyers. You are the LOSER on this one.

CUT all ties.

Then in a year or 2 , ask again with different JUDGE for custody , if you want MEL. But this is costing you a fortune and JUDGE ******* GORDON is siding with Oskana on all this.

Mel, forget the Demon Oskana and her child, it's your DOOM if you don't. Do you want to have to string this OUT. Focus on your other children.

Kick her out of your house. But get out of this Judge's Court. He makes you pay for all her lawyers and then gives oksana no negative consequences for not following Judge's Orders.

I mean, is it worth it MEL. Really? People that think you are "bad" guy will still think that, but all your fans, will understand you got a "raw deal".

End it. And fight another day.

Whats funny is in the video clip she BARELY SPEAKS. Gag order lifted and OKSANA shuts her mouth.

She didn't need to say a word. Her self satisfied smirk said it all.

That's not a win for Oksana? Mel still gets his visitation with his daughter thats what this is all about for him. I cant see $20,000 a month hurting Mels bank balance.. I think lifting the gag order is great. Now we all get to hear more from the Police regarding the tapes and TMZ can post all the emails from the bodyguard and everything else they have stashed. Bring it onnnn lol

@Shocker

I think that you made out a very interesting point; however, I hope that Harvey and company continues to substantiate their sources before publishing these do***ents.

Wow. I guess the angels were not on Mel's side today. Who does he think he is by not abiding by a judge's ruling and on top of it saying he won't pay until rent is deducted? The hell? Unless the judge says otherwise, you need to abide with his decision. I hope Oksana takes him to the cleaners. His reputation is already damaged and he is the laughing stock and butt of jokes of everyone in showbusiness.

The gag order is lifted and for the first time Horrorwitz and Oksana walk out and don't say a word? Wtf???
I can only conclude that she doesn't want to answer questions about the money!!
Also she's ticked because she didn't get overnight visits etc cancelled. HAHAHAHA

I am REALLY deceived by the Judge. Now, Oksana, her mother, sister, her son with T.Dalton they are going to live FOR FREE in MG house... Nice..uh? And they even got married!

The $60...,000 they are going to go to pay Oksana's debts or to support ALSO her family.

Judge Gordon..sorry to say.. you were wrong..wrong..wrong.

$20k per month for what? Based on what? Plus free rent? they weren't even married!

No wonder OG wanted to live in California. The legal system is totally screwy, prime for this gold digger to fester in.

If California falls into the ocean or declares bankruptcy, good riddance. This is not justice, it's judges with heads up their pooper aiding and abetting thieves and liars. Great example for the rest of the world.

Are you crazy??? No way should Mel walk away from his child!! The first years with a child are a new wonder every day! Why would he want to miss those??
The fight to see Lucia later would be worse if he were to abandon her. This is the worst advice I've saw written for Mel ever!!
At the end of the day seeing his daughter is more important than $$$.
