The plaintiff, who has hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, claims he was just one of a group of paparazzi who was taking pictures of the 'New Slaves' hitmaker when the incident occurred. The lawsuit alleges that ''without warning or provocation'', Kanye ''suddenly attacked, punching and attempting to wrestle the camera from'' Ramos' hands after the photographer asked him: ''Can we talk to you?'' He claims he was able to protect his camera but fell to the ground ''with enough force that he sustained injuries to his right hip, as well as accompanying pain and emotional distress.'' »

A celebrity courtroom drama typically goes like this: Plaintiff calls witnesses; defense calls witnesses; Gloria Allred does press conference on courthouse steps despite knowing none of said witnesses; Nancy Grace fumes all week through flaming nostrils of justice; and ... scene.
Again, that's how things usually go down. Unless the trial has to do with Michael Jackson's death. Then you get at least three of the above-plus ghosts!
In case you haven't been following this month's Trial of the Century, some background: Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson is suing concert promotion company Aeg, saying that the firm negligently retained Dr. Conrad Murray, and therefore, Aeg, like Murray, is responsible for the pop legend's demise.

It all happened last week, when Aeg CEO Randy Philips took the stand. »
Exactly the sort of figure presaged by “Network,” Morton Downey Jr., with his unique blend of bullying, liberal-baiting politics and Barnum-like eye for the human circus, turned his latenight New York talkshow into syndicated TV’s most attention-getting sideshow. Now Downey’s brief but influential moment in the spotlight is the subject of “Evocateur,” an entertaining, affectionate docu created by three self-professed fanboys, which proves as nostalgic for the host himself as for a bygone broadcast era, before the reality-tv explosion allowed the inmates to fully take over the asylum. Solid reviews and fest pedigree should draw the Downey faithful and assorted other media gadflies to this day-and-date Magnolia release.
As New York and New Jersey high schoolers in the 1980s, co-directors Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller and Jeremy Newberger never actually made it to a taping of “The Morton Downey Jr. Show,” but various friends and friends of friends did, »
