The Pellicano Trial: Government's Witness List Revealed

Wed Mar 05, 2008 @ 06:27PM PST

Posted by Matthew Belloni

Pellicano_2 With the jury seated and opening statements set for tomorrow at 8am, prosecutors in the Anthony Pellicano wiretapping trial filed their 127-name witness list today. Included are all the Pellicano-related names we've come to expect: execs Brad Grey and Michael Ovitz, actors Garry Shandling and Sylvester Stallone, and journalists Anita Busch and Bernard Weintraub, to name but a few of the industry figures. The full list's here.

Bert Fields also made the list, prompting us to become unreasonably excited to see whether the famed entertainment litigator can withstand some heated questioning from prosecutors (or from Pellicano himself, who Fields has acknowledged employing and who, as we've noted in amazement, is still representing himself).

We're betting Fields will do just fine.
