Jury To Decide Keanu Reeves’ Pap Smear Case

October 31st, 2008 // 1 Comment

Brazilian-born photographer Alison Silva received a major blow to his claim that Keanu Reeves injured the paparazzo’s left hand in a car accident last year when lawyers for the Matrix star showed video of Silva took while scaling a fence after the accident.

The video was one that Alison shot of Britney Spears, which presumably would have required the use of both of the shutterbug’s hands. In his defense, Silva said, “That was a good video.”

Reeves’ legal team focused on contradictions in Silva’s testimony, while he argued that a language barrier added to the confusion. The court session is expected to go to jury this afternoon.

    Granted, a language barrier can often cause confusion but as this was a legal matter, surely they would have brought in a professional translation company to ensure that both parties were clearly understood?

    Obviously, you can never really tell the rights and wrongs of a case but there are professionals in place to make sure that a language barrier isn’t an issue.
