Oksana Grigorieva Drops Domestic Violence Claim Against Mel Gibson
Gibson’s lawyer, Stephen Kolodny, and the judge were said to be visibly shocked, reports TMZ.
Oksana Grigorieva has dropped her domestic violence claim against Mel Gibson, TMZ reported Wednesday.
Her attorney Dan Horowitz told Judge Scott Gordon she would not pursue claims that Gibson’s alleged violence against her is grounds to change the custody order for their infant daughter.
Gibson’s lawyer, Stephen Kolodny, and the judge were said to be visibly shocked, the site reports.
The protective order she had obtained against Gibson - prohibiting the actor from contacting or harassing her -- also has been terminated.
Sources tell TMZ Grigorieva wants to be able to communicate directly with Gibson rather than using intermediaries.
Horowitz did not say if Grigorieva is still pursuing a civil lawsuit against the actor.
