"You were paid to investigate crimes and your salary was paid by the people of Los Angeles," pointed out Mr. Saunders. But instead, Saunders added, you were busy spending hours looking up people for Mr. Pellicano.
At the end of the conversation, Pellicano again implored Arneson to get him as much information as he could about the woman, saying, "Pretty please with sugar on top." And with that, the government rested.
A source close to the case mentioned that the statute runs out today on any charges in connection with Mr. Ovitz's alleged wiretapping of his enemies. So unless he committed perjury during his testimony today, Ovitz is in the clear.
Civil attorneys licked their collective lips in anticipation of suing the Beverly Hills Police department for a host of crimes based on a detective's confirmation that he'd violated police databases for Pellicano.
Ms. Palazzo tended not to remember anything about working for Pellicano except that she had a relationship with defendant Ray Turner, that 98% of it was physical and that, they "messed around in the closet."
Ms. Shafrir testified to not instructing Mr. Pellicano to wiretap and to being "shocked" when she was played an actual wiretap... The government plans to call Michael Ovitz on Tuesday or at the latest, Wednesday.
Ms. Carradine testified that she didn't originally ask Mr. Pellicano to wiretap her ex Keith, but rather she wanted him to investigate whether he was really as broke as he'd claimed during their divorce proceedings.
At the end of the day, Lisa Gores, the ex-wife of billionaire Alex Gores, took the stand. Looking like a Jennifer Aniston clone, Ms. Gores testified to having an affair with her then brother-in-law, Tom Gores.
After Keith Carradine split with his wife in 2000, bad things started happening to him. Not only did he find himself in the middle of a nasty, contentious divorce, his ex-wife started dating Anthony Pellicano.
