Is being a celebrity an advantage in dealing with the law (OJ, Robert Blake) or a disadvantage? Nearly two years after Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s honeymoon, famed film producer Joel Silver is being sued for the wrongful death of his assistant Carmel Musgrove in Bora Bora. NYC attorney and entertainment law expert Richard Roth will discuss the case, where Musgrove’s parents are suing Silver and his personal chef for wrongful death in their 28 year-old daughter’s drowning. Musgrove drowned in a Bora Bora lagoon while traveling with her employer for the honeymoon of Aniston and Theroux. Reports claim the deceased had consumed a number of drugs and alcohol while also being fatigued from overwork. Those, along with other factors that led to Carmel Musgrove’s death are traceable to the defendants’ involvement.
