$ 5 Million Dollars from Actor Mel Gibson for his “paramour”, Oksana Grigorieva.


This case also involved the fight against Mel Gibson’s “machine” which pressed the Los Angeles District Attorney to charge Oksana Grigorieva with extortion and to not charge Mel Gibson with the assault on Ms. Grigorieva.

After months of intense negotiations, courtroom battles, the contentious deposition of Mel Gibson (taken by Horowitz), charges were NOT filed against Ms. Grigorieva.  Mel Gibson was charged and convicted for the assault.  A settlement worth over $ 5 million dollars was obtained from Mel Gibson.
