Bottom line is that only three people involved in the entertainment industry were charged in this case--despite the fact that almost all of Mr. Pellicano's clients were related to the entertainment business.
Braun also went after the government's witness, Tarita Virute. As you probably don't recall at this point, Ms. Virtue was a one-woman Pellicano-bashing machine when she took the stand for the government.
Aware that the only thing that matters more to people in Hollywood than the location of their parking space is their title, Pellicano went for the jugular, insinuating that Tarita Virtue's title was meaningless.
The big bombshells started coming when Ms. Virtue testified that Pellicano had been hired by Brad Grey to find out information on a screenwriter who was suing Grey over credit involving the film Scary Movie.
