Oksana Grigorieva:

WINNING!

3/6/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva and her legal team have scored yet another victory against Mel Gibson ... TMZ has learned Mel must fork over an additional $300,000 for her attorney's fees.

0124-oksana-mel-ex-tmz-01

Sources connected with Oksana tell us ... Mel must pay the $300k immediately ... per Judge Scott Gordon.

TMZ has been privy to a partial tab on how much Oksana's lawyers -- which total more than 40  -- have requested.  That figure exceeds an incredible $3 million.  Mind you ... it's a custody case involving one kid.

We don't have a tally of how much was actually rewarded, but it well exceeds $1 million, and counting.

Justice -- it ain't cheap.

who flipped on Grigorieva after she fired him; h
Canook
Well, first of all we all know that she did not fire him, on the contrary she had been defending him till Mel had to go to court and ask the judge to REMOVE this BG from around his child.
How easy it is to fool the public! This is how she fooled them too and lucky for her somebody else was so pissed at Mel than they backed her.

How on God's green earth has a Million Dollars been "earned" in legal fees for a custody case where there is already an agreement?
All these fees are mostly regarding her defense of possible criminal indictments. If I were Mel's legal team, I would ask for affidavits from the attorneys getting paid if any of the fees submitted are for other attorneys or work other attorneys have provided to them(criminal defense) as well as PR firms. Who is paying Jaffe or anyone else? Are we to believe hollywood is all working pro bono? NOT!!
As far as I can tell, Trope is the only one who has earned a fee for the custody matter. The rest is the shell game.

It's just one of many legal abuses in this case. Nothing surprises me any more.

Russian website interpolates the TZM "WINNING" message by adding that Gibson must pay HER $ 300.000 in attorney fees. Has she ever paid a $ 300.000 retainer fee to her attorneys? I thought she claimed she was broke and Horowitz and Garbus worked "pro bono."

Oksana Grigorieva sue Mel Gibson over $ 300,000
Published on March 7, 2011 and she won.

The actor will have to pay lawyers' fees ex-girlfriend

Oksana Grigorieva through the courts "gone wrong" with Mel Gibson's next decent amount. Thus, the actor MUST PAY HER $ 300,000 in attorney's fees, which his ex-girlfriend 40.

Earlier, Gibson has had to unfasten Oksana $ 60 thousand child support that he owed, and to assume all expenses for the house where she lives with baby Lucia. In addition, the maintenance of the daughter he pays $ 5 thousand per month. Now a couple is suing for custody of the baby. And as soon as prosecutors should decide on the criminal case against Mel Gibson. Rumor has it that an actor can get a real life, but the charges of blackmailing his ex-girlfriend is likely to withdraw for lack of evidence.

Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen have been digging their own graves for a while now and sorry but the sooner they fall into them the faster we can really care about what matters Lybia etc.. Mel's ex may be a goldigger (like he didn't already know that she was arm candy and a ******* for him just pay thousands like Charlie to get off and even so you don't hit a woman in front of your baby so he has everything coming to him and apparently men want sex and women want money what do you *******s expect sex lasts minute especially the older the man or he can't come and you want him off after an hour, at least women can take care of their kids education and health......

Pauline, of course some of what you are saying makes sense. But I am not sure if Oxa knows how to take care of her kids. Look at Alex. He is a mess. A mother is not the one who got knocked up and use her babies for the wrong reason, but the one who raised her kids honest and decent human beings that society can benefit from for the common good. This is the whole purpose of parenting.

I guess the judge is on the take, they need to investigate him, this is a raw deal for Mel.
