Hollywood Private Eye Trial Begins

The trial of the private investigator to the stars got under way in Los Angeles, and the witness list includes more than a few Hollywood names who will be witnesses or at least referenced during the testimony.  Pellicano and four co-defendants, including a former LAPD officer and a telephone company official, will be tried for their roles in secretly taping litigants in divorce and other cases.  Among the likely witnesses are actors Sylvester Stallone and Keith Carradine along with superagent Michael Ovitz.  Among those who have entered guilty pleas related to Pellicano's actions are a director of one of the Die Hard movies and Carradine's ex-wife.  This is not the end of Pellicano's troubles as he's slated to go on trial for additional charges that also include a well-known Los Angeles entertainment attorney. A Los Angeles Times story (here) gives a preview of the case. (ph)

It is not good when a PI loses perspective and crosses the line. But it can be murky at times.
