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."

HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone on Team Mel/Team Truth...

Today is Mel's 55th birthday. Perhaps Oksana is sickened by the thought that he's enjoying the day by celebrating with his family and friends.

Does anyone know what happened to Lisa Bloom?

Belinda,
I think you are onto something. Can the freedom of speech issue be brought in to her violating the agreement regarding confidentiality? IMO she has battles to fight on all fronts - defamation, illegal recording, extortion, false charges, fabricating evidence, broken contractual obligations, to name a few. I wonder if it particularly applies to federal charges about sending the altered tapes through the phone or internet?

This is totally disgusting! Why does this piece of garbage repeatedly get the easy walk through out judicial system?
Who is backing her? Why are so many willing to help her?
Answer: it is those who hate Mel. It isn't that she is worthy, it is that Mel is hated.
Whatever, she is still in serious trouble and I anticipate her in an orange jumpsuit or deported.
This is all about making Mel suffer as much as possible. They are using her to do it.

So where's the family lawyer of the moment, R. Litz?

Is it me or is there something odd about a mother being repped by criminal lawyers in a custody battle?

Just can't figure out how a 1st Amendment lawyer would bring anything to the table.

If piano player is allowed to say what she wants -- isn't Mr. Gibson allowed the same with his opinion of her regarding the alleged 'tapes?'

Just seems to me that it would open up a lot of things that the piano player would not want brought up.

Tee hee

Thanks Stacy.
So now we know it was Judge M. Steinberg who granted the PHV. I wonder what the limit is in CA.

Curious,
Excellent point, but does hearsay apply to recorded interviews? Even though it was not said under oath, wouldn't it be admissible as to credibility?

Child custody, I think, becomes unsettled as soon as one of the parents thinks they have a right to be heard again.

But it all seems weird to me, too. I wish someone would give us answers on who all is deposing/interrogating whom.
