Judge Awarded Mel Gibson

More Face Time with Baby

12/17/2010 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson will get to see his daughter more than he has in the past, thanks to Judge Scott Gordon.

Mel Gibson Custody
As TMZ first reported, Judge Gordon modified the existing custody agreement late Thursday.

Now sources tell us Gordon has given Mel more time with Lucia, but not a lot more.  We're told the increase is measured by hours -- not days -- per week.  Sources say the increase for Mel amounts to a little more than one day a week.

According to the agreement Mel and Oksana Grigorieva signed in May, both have joint physical and legal custody of Lucia.  Under that agreement, Mel had visitation rights a total of 6 days -- with three overnight visits -- every two weeks. The judge has now increased Mel's face time.

It's a far cry from what Oksana wanted ... namely, to strip Mel of overnight visits altogether and to only give him monitored visitation.

Sources tell us Judge Gordon told the parties there were no winners or losers, but that the change was made for the best interests of Lucia.

Why couldn't the judge have awarded more face time for Mel? I hope we learn some more in the days to come :)

Now that the family case is almost done, let's start the criminal case and see her have to pay the tons of lawyers this time herself. I hope it dries her up for all the money she conned.

Miss Oksana herself has claimed she was taking 30 pills a day to "calm down". I consider it another of her stretched truths.

Whatever dose of oxycodone she may be taking obviously does not impair her ability to drive, give interviews or function in court. A nanny cares for Lucia in any case.

Oxy didn't say it
It was attributed to a 'source close to Oxy'

It's a resounding win for Mel, IMO. Oxy asked to have his custody completely stripped. Mel asked to leave the existing agreement in place, and if the mediation was set aside, to strip Oxy of custody. Obviously, this ruling leaned towards his request.

Obviously, the judge is privy to a whole lot more info than we posters are. And from his ruling, it can be surmised that he does NOT believe Mel is a threat to Lucia.

As far as her taking the 30 pills a day, has anyone else ever noticed the sometimes glazed look she has in her eyes when shes photographed or interviewed? Sure you could say its from lack of brainpower, but that could be contributed to the fact that she might indeed be high during all of this.

Just some food for thought.

Keep spreading those legs Oksana, eventually you'll hit pay dirt.

I'd love to nut on her face in front of her kids. Show 'em what a whore mommy is.

Or Mr. Harvey is in error. Yesterday he said Attorney Horowitz was from New York, Charles corrected him and reminded him it was Attorney Garbus.

Sorry for delay, was watching Live.

maybe the judge was just making up for some driving time. Wonder if that court part is over now.

This is good news to hear. Although not a huge increase in visitation for Mel it was an increase, probably enough sending Ox into a real spin. For I believe Mel is the better "hands on" parent, I can't believe it is easy for a baby to be schleped (sp?) from house to house every other day (or however it works). It is probably the only "outing" she has since her mommy can't seem to take her anywhere. The baby looks very happy... Mel must be very pleased I would think.

a little more than 1 day a month ...

that's like 1-2 hours more each time Mel sees his kid, this ruling is not in favor of OG, but it really doesn't change that much for the other party either, I guess the judge is still waiting for something, or he's just trying to show that he at lease did something as a punishment.

I have a question though for you. Just heard harvey and Eli joking around about jews and nazis, so if it was printed in text would they look bad? Does it count when you hear them say it and know how they meant it?

Just wondering if I printed an article with what just happened if people would take it as prejudice. Yes I know they are both are jewish, but what would German people take it as?

Coulda sworn I had seen an article where Miss Oksana also said it. But right now, not in mood to deal with my notes, so I'll go with the flow on this.
