LOS ANGELES (CN) - An actress who appeared on "The Larry Sanders Show" claims she was harassed and the safety of her son was threatened by private investigator Anthony Pellicano.
Linda Durst, who is also known as Linda Doucett, claimed in a Superior Court suit against Pellicano, attorney Bert Fields, the law firm of Greenberg, Glusker, Fields, Claman and Machtinger, LLP, and producer Brad Grey, that she was targeted to discourage her testimony in support of comedian Garry Shandling in a dispute with Grey.
The defendants allegedly "did engage in such harassment by stalking plaintiff, by illegally and unlawfully accessing plaintiff's personal, private and confidential DMV, medical and other records, by questioning plaintiff's neighbors, friends and family, by conducting surveillance on plaintiff, her friends and family, by telephoning a specific threat to the safety of plaintiff's son to plaintiff, and by wiretapping plaintiff."
The complaint was filed by Michael L. Cohen.
A similar lawsuit was filed against Pellicano, Fields and Greenberg Glusker by a nanny who had worked for actress Taylor Thomson.
Pamela Miller claimed she was harassed after being asked to testify in Thomson's divorce proceedings. Thomson is a defendant in Miller's suit.
Both complaints were filed by Michael L. Cohen.
