Pellicano Trial: Bert Fields To Take The Fifth

Attorney to the stars Bert Fields will take the fifth amendment in the trial of Anthony Pellicano, Huffington Post has learned. Fields, who represents a bevy of Hollywood's biggest names, including Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer, has reportedly used the services of Pellicano over the years. The government has refused to give Mr. Fields "use immunity" because they believe that it is unnecessary as the statute of limitations has expired on claims that could potentially be made against the star lawyer. Mr. Fields, however, has indicated that if called to testify, he will take the fifth amendment. A hearing on the matter will be held on Monday, March 31, 2008.
