  • Man cleared of murder by show "Curb your enthusiasm"

    http://imdb.com/news/wenn/2007-03-08/

    "A man cleared of murder after he was spotted in the background of outtake footage of TV comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm has been awarded damages of $320,000. Juan Catalan, 28, spent five months in jail charged with the murder of 16-year-old Martha Puebla until he used outtake footage - showing him at an L.A. Dodgers game in Los Angeles when the crime occurred - to prove his innocence. Catalan's attorney Todd Melnik trawled through hours of footage of a televised game between the Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves that the defendant attended with his six-year-old daughter, before discovering the Larry David-starring comedy was being shot at the stadium on the same day. Catalan could be seen clearly eating a hot dog in a scene that ended up on the cutting room floor. A time code on the footage proved Catalan's whereabouts - 20 miles from the murder scene in San Fernando. Los Angeles City Council has agreed to pay $320,000 to Catalan."

    I heard about this a year ago. I think he is just getting his money now. I believe he was cleared of murder a while ago.

        Yea good for him. I hate stories like that especially when the guy has a kid that he couldnt see for the time he was in jail. He deserves every penny they give him.

          Ahhh.. good to see Larry David could help save another soul as he has done with mine by creating seinfeld and curb. Truly a comedic genious.

          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
          they get smoked.

            Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

            So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
