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.

Who'sThat    

so i have a far-fetched thought so bare with me...it is all just a guess and nothing factual except for the fact that the judge appears to be dragging this out...why?

is it possible that the judge has been privy to the police work and the DA have asked the judge to drag the child custody rulings out as long as he can? why?

perhaps, they are afraid that this grifter along with her family would flea the country if they were done with the child custody or get money out of Mel before they were ready to throw ALL the books at her/them?

IF this grifter/family receives any moneys up front from Mel, perhaps the police think they may leave the country and IF they return to Russia, they would surely be unable to be found?

Either the judge is a good, honest judge who is aware of all of Ox's antics yet has decided to go along with and help the police and give them more time to find more evidence or

the judge is dirty in someone's pocket and is siding with Ox one step at a time as not to cause too much notice giving her all that she wants at one time...

just thinking a bit here...that is all...but i am still pissed at today's rulings!

I hope Mel does not stoop to Oksana's level. I for one don't want to see it or hear about it. It has been bad enough coming form her, and because she has disclosed all this personal and private stuff it has made her a public Pariah. I don't want to see that happen. Also, if Mel leaks horrible things about Oksana, she will use that against him later on with Lucia. It has been childish and sickening the way Oksana has behaved. I pray Mel Gibson will not stoop to her level.

Gene, I don't think Mel WILL leak horrible things about OG, but since OG and her lawyer's have now gone for the lifting of a gag order, it means the media can hear it all! If Mel and his lawyer's are giving testimony about OG's proven character, her affairs, her golddigga tendencies, her extortion, it's now not their fault if it gets leaked to us it's OG's and her lawyers hm lol?!!

God, what a smile on that woman's face.

So, she gets 20K a month and can live rent free. Does this mean if she moves he gets to pay 20K and her new rental bill?

I think that was already asked. But, I don't know what the answer was. Anyone know? TY

They're lining up to get visas as we type. Judge just gave the green light.
I'm currently advising all my friends to move to the USA and hook up with some rich guy and have a kid. Easy living for the rest of their lives ;)

The little girl is happy to be going to seeing Daddy, happy to see her nanny and even her bodyguard that her Mommy furiously tries to flirt with and get information from...the nanny and bodyguard seem to make a good team, I hope they never betray Mel for the likes of a gold-digger Ox, that puts on a "show" for that paps she called.

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".

@John

Criminal investigations have been initiated AND IT CAN'T BE ENDED AT THIS POINT!!! The "DIE HAS BEEN CAST" by Greedisana and Mel Gibson has no other choice except to fight until the authorities have completed their investigations. Now is the perfect time "TO DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND" AND STOP "OLE GREEDY" IN HER TRACKS!!! Why should he give up when there's a very good chance that she may be tossed in jail!!! THAT ALONE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR!!!

All ur OONTZ r belong 2 us    

Considering that Oksaloon is UNEMPLOYED, and that Mel has paid for numerous (THAT REQUIRES ONGOING, COSTLY LIFETIME MAINTENANCE) trips for COSMETIC surgeries, one would assume (or is it ASS.U.ME) that she would have a dermatologist in her pocket as well?

I mean, why hire Mady Shany, an aesthetician (a mere board certified facialist at that) when Oksaho-who-cried-wolf has SEVERE skin problems? Geez... it's MOTTLED! WTF?

Sam Most, if not all lawyers hire an investigator to go over the background of their client's opposer, they will already have had someone looking into the people testifying on her behalf and looking under every little stone lol! The moment they took it to the Sheriff's dept regarding extortion, her lawyer's will have had someone out checking up, if only so that when they question her or her witnesses in court they will already know the answers to the questions they are asking lol!!

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.

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 $$$.

__________________________________________________________

I agree with you Muppet 100% ... this is the worst advise to give Mel at this time.

If he were to abandon Lucia now ...

Later if he would want to start a relationship with Lucia ... she would wonder why he had abandoned her in the first place.

And we know Oksana would use it against him ... saying that he didn't care enough about Lucia and had abandoned her.

No No No ... bad advice.

One day when Lucia is older she will learn how hard her dad fought to keep her in his life.

Don't worry Redvixen Oskank will get her karma and Mel will be fine and get this Oskank live on Lucia money and doesn't give rat azz about Lucia or Alex because she see them as meal tickets and will used Lucia as a pawn to hurt Mel but not caring that it will end up hurting Luica more than anything and there no love in Oskank eyes with her children and the only thing Oskank care about is herself and money that all.

Message to Mel:
As frustrating as the legal system can be, hang in there. Many of us see the exploitation and though we may not be able to change injustice, I hope it gives you some comfort to know we acknowledge and empathize what you are dealing with. I, for one, admire how you are handling this and fighting for your daughter. Stay strong, stand up for what you believe in your heart is right and you will succeed. None of us are perfect, but I sense you have a more genuine heart than most. May God bless you.

It's obvious that this Oksana saw a ton of dollar$ the first time she saw Mel.
And most likely before she met him. In addition she wanted $$ any way she could get some. There's an e-book called "Extortion For Dummies" on her hard drive.
The worlds oldest profession gets older.
