John Travolta's Lawyer Willing To Fight To The Death Over Allegations
Over the past few days, there have been rumors John Travolta’s lawyer Marty Singer might push for a mediation with a private judge and sealed transcripts to avoid the attention of a very public trial. It turns out those rumors are false, at least according to the lawyer for John Doe #2, Okorie Okorocha. He says the case will definitely wind up in a courtroom because Singer has told his opposing litigator he’s willing to “fight to the death” over allegations his client did anything wrong.
Why exactly Okorocha would feel the need to speak to the passion of Travolta’s lawyer is beyond me, but the revelation came out during an interview with E! News. In addition to the whole fighting to the death thing, Okorocha also revealed he’s pretty sure Singer will probably sue both him and his client, but as all discussions are preliminary at this point, the details of any potential countersuit are unknown.
Since Travolta was first accused last week, the case has featured a stunning number of momentum swings. At one point, there were three potential plaintiffs, but Okorocha got rid of one after it was discovered the date of the alleged assault happened while the actor was thousands of miles away and the third dude supposedly hasn’t even talked to a lawyer.
I have no idea what the future might hold, but for the time being, it certainly seems like Travolta could survive this scare without paying anyone but his lawyer.
