Oksana Grigorieva

Gets New Lawyer

... and the Flu

1/3/2011 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva has a new lawyer -- #42 by our count -- but she also has a sick feeling in her stomach.

New York attorney Marty Garbus just got approval by an L.A. County Superior Court judge to appear on Oksana's behalf.  He joins attorney Dan Horowitz.

Now for the sick feeling ... Oksana is on her way to a law office for part 4 of her ongoing deposition in the Mel Gibson custody war.  But we're told she feels like crap and may have to pull the plug on the depo.

If she goes home sick, she can get a few pointers from "The People's Court."

I can't believe Garbus got the ok unless she was going to be charged for extortion.

Maybe they already know for sure that she'll be charged.

WTH??? How is it that this lying, cheating gold-digging Russian whore gets more "rights" and special treatment, even having this sleaze bag lawyer Garbus, given a special permission to represent her from SUPERIOR COURT when the case Judge Gordon has repeatedly turned her down? He is being sued in CA already. The ACLU pushed this through because they hate Mel.

Greetings oh my glorious Empress =D

I'm disappointed, but not surprised that they admitted him. The question then becomes, what will happen to Mr. Kris? Atorney Garbus was granted PHV to rep Miss Oksana. Is poor lil ol' Mr. Kris now on his own?

@ Belinda -- LOL

'I'm ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille.'

Actually, I think Garbus is so important because his daughter is a do***entary filmaker, Liz Garbus, in partnership with Rory Kennedy.

She will have her own personal do***entary camera following her around.

Tee hee

Horrorwitz and Garbagus are the only ones sticking with her and it's funny Garbagus can't practice in California.

Did this happen as a result of the NYTimes reported ACLU exparte filing? Since when did Martin Garbus become interested in Family Law.... in CA?

Was it Judge Marjorie Steinberg who granted Mr. Garbus permission?

How do fees work - can he file for expenses incurred BEFORE he was granted permission to practice in CA? Do any expenses before have to be excluded? How on earth could any Judge discern what should be on which side of THAT LEDGER? I guess in CA you truly can put the cart before the horse! REMARKABLE.

I wonder if there is a REST OF THE STORY, like so often when it comes to the court hearings? Did the JUDGE make Oksana responsible for HER ATTORNEY fees?

How does it affect the legal issues surrounding Martin Garbus' conduct while NOT allowed to practice in CA?

Come on TMZ - where are the FACTS of the story?

Considering Martin Garbus' conduct while he was NOT permitted and the malpractice case filed against him which is easily found, I really wonder what RULES OF THE COURT and LAW BOOK whatever Judge heard this case used.

Personally I hope someone appeals this decision and sends a request to the CIP for a review, if that is possible.

Too many things don't add up where Martin Garbus goes...

Are there any real investigative reporters left anymore?

Between Ox's liver lips and Garbus's nose hairs, those two pics are making ME sick.

That sick feeling OG has in her stomach is realizing that one year ago Mel was still in her life, and how times have changed one year later.

I meant "wasn't allowed". Garbagus is allowed now.

Gee ... maybe someone should tell Larry King that the guy in his interview wasn't Oksana's lawyer.

Garbus is a trial lawyer. Custody is being heard but in deposition not by trial. What is going to trial that she would require his services? Let's argue Negotiations vs Extortion LOL

"The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is one of many organizations that was created by the Illuminati for the purpose of bringing forth a new world order. It is a legal front that spends most of its time making war upon the Christians and their faith from within the Federal Court system. This organization was found to be practicing in un-American activities by the U.S. Congress in 1945."

That's a quote from a website about U.S. democracy.

I'm sure Gasbag's billed as a consultant until this morning.
