Mel to Judge: Strip Oksana of Custody, STAT!

1/8/2011 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's lawyer went to court for an emergency hearing Friday, asking the judge to immediately strip Oksana Grigorieva of custody of baby Lucia ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the case tell us the trigger for the hearing was TMZ's story the day before ... in which we reported Oksana claimed in her deposition earlier in the week that Mel beat her in order to get aroused during sex.

We're told Mel and his lawyers were outraged and accused Oksana's team of leaking the info. Mel's family lawyer, Stephen Kolodny, asked Judge Scott Gordon on Friday to take custody away from Oksana on grounds she acted maliciously -- not in the best interests of Lucia -- by allegedly leaking the story. 

According to our sources, Kolodny also argued many of the allegations Oksana made during her deposition -- including the one reported on TMZ -- have never been made before and is a belated attempt to smear Mel and harm Lucia.

Our sources say Kolodny asked Judge Gordon for an immediate ruling but the judge refused, setting the matter for a full hearing next month.

Neither of them deserves that girl. It is shame that money will get her in the end. Mel is a child molestor. God knows what will happen to her once she is in his custody.

Harvey, what other allegations has she made during her depo that have never been made before? Surely the latest was the lowest she (or anyone) could go? Are you holding back on something even more disgusting? I hope so, coz the last was pretty tacky and doesn't reflect highly on the leaker or the leak monger.

This move by Mel's legal team will go no where,For the simple fact that it has no basis. What she said about him already which he himself has agreed happened is worse then this supposed new story imo.

True or not his sexual perversions have nothing to do with the child unless........ well we don't need to go there but you get where I'm going not that I'm suggesting that is the case at all.

But if true it makes alot of sense maybe that's why the old fart is always so angry he can't proform well anymore,Believe me if I had that problem I would be the walking around all day like the HULK.

Dude needs to let this die a quick death cause the likelyhood of him winning full custody is slim to none. JUST STFU and get it over with.

How much of the taxpayers money is she wasting and how long will it go on? She's proved she's an unfit mother...she's proved she lies...she's proved that she'll only hire lawyers that will tell lies with her...she's proved she needs to be sent back to her homeland, and quickly!!

Time to get down and dirty, Mel. It's a shame you have to, but it's time. Your daughter needs you.

Dear Squiggy, and here I was thinking Oz was the only place flooding. Clearly it's flooding under the trolls bridge and you've all been washed up with the flotsam. Swim little trolls, swim! Here's a rope - oh dear, seems to be a bit short.... bugger! Sucks to be you.

Hiya FarnerFan :o)

Agree with all you said, except - she's not wasting taxpayers money (yet), she's wasting Mel's money. He's the one who has to pay for her family court laywers.

"Judge Casts Suspicious Eye On Oksana

10/21/2010 12:30 AM PDT by TMZ Staff

The judge presiding over the custody war between Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson believes there's probable cause that Oksana's computer will prove she committed the crime of extortion.


TMZ broke the story ... none other than Judge Scott Gordon signed the L.A. County Sheriff's Department warrant allowing investigators to seize Oksana's computer. Under the law, Judge Gordon can sign the warrant only if he believes there's reason to believe information in the computer will prove she tried extorting Mel.

This is really interesting for the family law case -- Oksana is before a judge who has more than a hunch she committed a crime".


Cthrew - do you think this bodes well?

Cthrew - don't worry - I have reconsidered. That was in October. If Judge Gordon was serious, Mel and Lucia wouldn't still be in limbo. Sorry, stupid late night question.

Good morning / afternoon / evening all --

Was upset that I got up so early on Saturday, but are they finally going on offensive?

Can't imagine what it would take to shut her up -- the woman is demented. Don't think any of the authorities involved in this wants to stick a neck out alone (the DA, judges). I think they are scared of her PR.

Tee hee
