Progress On The David Copperfield Sexual Assault Case - Kind Of


Finally something has happened in the David Copperfield sexual assault case. It isn't much but at least we now have a timeline. Yesterday, the a-hole magician's attorneys got a six month stay in the civil case. The reason? Well, it is actually a good reason. The US Attorney in Seattle is still investigating the crime and will finish it and decide whether to charge Copperfield within those six months. While that investigation is ongoing the a-hole can't really answer questions in the civil trial because he might incriminate himself in the criminal investigation. Although it would be fun to watch the a-hole squirm and have to plead the 5th Amendment, it isn't constitutionally fair and so the decision was the correct one.

So, within six months the feds will decide whether to proceed. If they have been working on it for two years and haven't quit then I think we will see something positive from them. If for some reason they decline to take it any further there is still the civil trial. Well, the civil case. I don't think David Copperfield will even let himself get deposed so this will settle before then. The last thing he wants is a really good lawyer asking him about his sex life for three days and having it leaked to the world.

If you click this link here, it will take you to the Seattle Times who has a timeline and the series of articles they have written on the case.

Why is that lawyer an a-hole? Did I miss something?

The magician is the a-hole. Re-read the phrase as "the attorneys for the a-hole magician".

He creeps me out. I hate the oily type he typifies. An acquaintance dated him for quite a while. A pair of dull narcissists, the both of them.

I'd rather hear about how he was paying Claudia Schiffer to be his fiance.

umm...are his magic tour tickets not selling?

I loathe him, but I would rather be bound, gagged and locked in car trunk with him for a week than watch five minutes of that certified twat Criss Angel.

Mina said...

Oh, okay! I read too fast then.

Cheryl said...

Isabel, I agree! Criss Angel is ick, nast.

Criss Angel looks like an idiot with that stupid hair.

The way Criss Angel spells his first name marks him as a douchebag. The clothing, hair, bad jewelry, etc., just confirm it.

As for Copperfield, I'll just reserve judgment on this til I get more info. You never know with celebs, their celebrity often makes them a target for crap like this, but on the other hand it can get them off if they do commit a crime, so I don't know....
